hello from ATX

Recommended Posts

hello, I'm a beginner, fresh from Austin, Texas.


read some of the major Taoist texts in college, but have only more recently been drawn to esoteric Taoism and actively trying to develop a practice. i'd occasionally drop into local Buddhist centers but felt myself craving more.


my introduction to much of this was through reading the Tao of Craft and speaking with a couple friends. I would like to learn more about the I Ching & start a Qi Gong practice.


I see Flying Phoenix Qigong and Spring Forest recommended a lot here, so I may look into that. 


part of my journey includes health issues that I've been dealing with neck pain as well as allergies/chronic fatigue. 


outside of that my interests are permaculture, weightlifting, technology futures, etc

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 friend 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,


Welcome, those are imo, two good systems worthy of investigation.  We are very lucky to have T. Dunn as an active member here.  I like Buddhism, great philosophy but Qi gong is action, a nice compliment.

Our Insult Policy- Read it, Live it




Welcome Glad to have you onboard.  Look forward to your commentary.
