Hello, Dao Bums!

Recommended Posts



My name is Martin, i'm in my forties and am from Germany.


I've been dabbling with meditation, chinese medicine and particularly the I Ching for many years, without getting too deep into it. I also have a little background in western tradition, particularly astrology, but i've also had some exposure to the work of Wilhelm Reich, for example. (Although that's probably not tradition, but the real western tradition seems more alien to us that the chinese tradition or so i appears at times...)


I picked up a chinese martial art a few years back. This led me to the point that i want to understand chinese tradition better, in order to make sense of my experiences.


I'm here to learn. I'm also looking forward to discussions with you!

Hello Ataraxia, and welcome.


Your membership is approved and we're happy you found your way to us. We look forward to accompanying you on some of the way that you still have to go.


Please take the time to read the two posts pinned at the top of this Welcome page and take a look at the forum terms and rules. This covers all you need to know when getting started.


For the first week you will be restricted to ten posts per day but after that you can post as much as you like. Also, until you’ve posted fifteen times in the forums, you’ll be a “Junior Bum” with somewhat restricted access and will be allowed only two private messages per day.


Good luck in your pursuits and best wishes to you,


Marblehead and the TDB team



Hi Martin,


I believe that most of your interests you mentioned above are discussed here so I think you will have no problem finding other members to talk with.


You are welcome to jump right in ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forms to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started.


May you enjoy your time here.
