Hello, like you, I am a newcomer to the world of Zen Buddhism. You can call me Josh, ShonenYo, or whatever you like.

I've been involved in active zazen, and other Buddhist practises from other sects; I'm coming mostly from the Theravada tradition. I suspect I am not the only one who has reconciled Zen with the teachings of old. I'd say I'm a practical Zen Buddhhist in Theravada theory. I'd like to know if anyone else feels the same way?

Nice meeting you all :mrgreen:
