dhammachick: Newbie

Hi all - I snarked this from Quiric because I thought the layout was a good base to start. Apologies.

 

Name: Dhammachick
Nationality/State: Australian / New South Wales
Describe Yourself: I'm a really new Buddhist who has finally committed to serious practise after several years of "dabbling". I'm a mum in inner-west Sydney and from a Pagan background. I still struggle with the concept of anatman but I'm trying my best to get my brain around it.
Any school/tradition you belong to: I am drawn to Tibetan and Zen Buddhism. I am yet to find a Sangha to join.
Special Interests: singing and songwriting, anthropology, ancient history, avid bookworm.

I hope to be able to contribute to this community as well as continue to learn from my fellow Buddhists :)

hi from a chick from erko! ;)

While i'm hardly a regular, i've attended teachings through the vajrayana centre at Ashfield. It's a Tibetan Buddhist centre so it may be right up your alley too.

Hi chick from Erko :) I found their address via Google not long after I posted this entry and did a drive by (not the gun kind LOL). It seems to be a place I'd love to attend and it is really close by. (They were kind enough to let me have a mosey around inside).

Thank you so much.
