Hello fellow travellers.

Hello fellow bums, greetings from the streets of London!


I first heard of the dao as described by David Lowry in his book the Sword and the Brush, given to me by my Shaolin teacher when I was 14. Since then I have casually practiced some internal martial arts for 6-7ish years and been fortunate enough to have learned from teachers with great hearts and small egos (unlike my own). I also read some Daoist texts like Lao Tzu, Zhuangzi and some more gimmicky but nonetheless great books such as the Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet. I'm now studying Religions and Philosophy at University and taking a course on Daoism over the next year or two.

As it is I'm now seriously committing to learning in the a system of Daoism and Martial arts, and throughly enjoying swapping kindly fists and knowledge with fellow thinkers on the dao. It is currantly raining on a beautiful autumn day and so adieu, I hope to discuss and meet the people on this site.
