Welcome Teague, I met you briefly at last year's BG conference - you were at the unconference too if I remember.

Hello everyone!

I've been on the path for over a decade now following what I interpreted later as a kundalini/A&P experience. After a brief exploration of self-hypnosis and sophrology, I discovered Yoga meditation and have had a daily meditation practice ever since. That practice evolved over the years. Over the past years, I've been applying mostly the Advanced Yoga Practices open system (aypsite.org).

Although yoga meditation has been my main tradition, I believe that enlightenment is a "universal phenomenon" and as such is to be found in most spiritual traditions. (The multiple paths to the top of the mountain metaphor). As such, I'm always interested in integrating practices from other traditions.

In the last year, through listening to the Buddhist Geeks podcast, I discovered Shinzen Young Basic Mindfulness system and added that to my mix of practice. That's my connection to the dharma.

I've met some of you at this year Buddhist Geeks conference, and I've been told that this was a nice community with calm and mature folks. That's rare on the Internet, so I joined right away :-)

I live in Montreal, QC (Canada) with wife and three boys (including a pair of twins). In my day job, I work as a manager in cloud computing.

Cheers

Francis

Hello everyone! I met some of you at BG14.

I started meditating Dec 2013 in the Goenka tradition, got A&P, found zero support after the 10-day so I then found DhO and Mahasi tradition. I'm used to reading the good people at DhO, but I like the cool and calm ethic I heard attributed to here, so I'm a bit between online homes at the moment.

Good to see you here! Once again I managed to thank Chris by accident today. I must be feeling grateful to him for something. I'll ask my subconscious to make it known.

Hello there!

I've stumbled upon awakenetwork.org by coincidence and after reading some public topics I've decided to stay here. I come from Croatia, Europe and I've been meditating for 3yrs now. I started to meditate mainly because of my anxiety disorder(s) and didn't follow any particular way of meditating. Instead of that I created my conglomerate technique combined from instructions I had look up on the internet but it stopped to work. So I have started to follow Shinzen Young's Five Way instructions.
My efforts to find a teacher here in Croatia were fruitless so I hope I'll find answers and guidance on this forum.

Best,

Kristijan

+1 on Hokai. I'm currently working with him via Skype, and find him to be an excellent teacher.

Hi Megan,

I'd love to hear your perspective on what's the same and what's different. It just so happens that there's currently a conversation about this very thing right here. Feel free to join in, cheer, heckle, throw popcorn, or whatever strikes you as appropriate.
