Hello and thank you for the opportunity to join a community of wayfinders! I have recently found myself a taoist and feel as if I am just beginning a journey while also realizing that I have been on it without understanding what it was.

I am an artist and father, world traveler and amateur cook, marathon runner and husband who also happens to work for a large food retail company in order to pay the bills.

After rediscovering myself on the path I have been gently working to deepen and broaden my understanding. I have been reading from the ZhuangZhi and diving deep into the I Ching. I have begun exploring Tai Chi exercises along with my usual activities. I have also been channeling my creative drives into a method of meditation, while also beginning to explore the first steps in what I hope will help me sit-in-forgetfulness.

At this point in my journey I am eager to hear the stories of other people who are asking the same questions and exploring the same territory.

Hello Andrew,


You sound like a great addition to this board.  Exploring and asking the same questions - many times getting different answers! It's all about following your heart and your intuition.  Welcome, and I hope you enjoy it here.


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


May you enjoy your time here.


Fa Xin
