Hi all! 


After studying Buddhism I discovered Taoism a few years ago. When I read the Tao Te Ching during a period of suicidal depression it was like seeing light at the end of the tunnel for the first time since ages. I starting reading and writing extensively on Taoism, not only reading TTC, Liezi and Zhuangzi, but also listening to almost all Alan Watts talks and anything you can find on YouTube about Taoism. I joined Tai Chi classes for a half a year but I found them a bit too expensive and might try Qi Going soon. I meditate too.


I'm happy to say that Taoism helped me to get out of the misery, so I want to stay engaged in it. I have been addressing this forum for a long time and I thought it was time to sign up.


That's it ;)
