Greetings to all,

I am a novice always looking to learn more. I started on this path accidentally as a teen when I first felt energy that i could  move through my body, though I had no clue what it was. So I stumbled and fumbled on my own for more than a decade as I grew up in a restrictive religious environment that treated such things as evil.  It has only been in the last few years that I learned of more traditional cultivation practices.

I'm poor at asking for advice and have only my own clumsy experiences with little traditional knowledge to share. So I look forward to learning more from those who wish to share and will share my own experiences with any who wish to know.

Thank you in advance for your kindness.

Welcome to the Dao Bums.  A wonderful forum to learn, discuss and cultivate.  Below are 3 important sections: Our Rules, The Insult Policy and our 3 Foundations.  Before you join give them a read. 


Most of it boils down to being respectful.  No name calling or trolling.  Post as if your mom's looking over your shoulder.  Discussion and arguments are what the board is about.  Keep it civil, don't get personal.  Don't be a troll or one issue zealot. 


We're here for good conversation and make some friends along the way, to be a community.  Jump right in, start threads asking questions, look for interesting threads and post your (relevant) thoughts. 


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,


Michael and the TDB team


Read and review Our Rules:



Our Insult Policy- Read it, Live it




Welcome.. we're all about asking for advice and/or getting too much at times.  Don't worry about asking, rather always considerate carefully.  Internet advice can be good, bad or ugly.
