    Hello

    Thought I would introduce myself. I was happy to read about this sangha in the Tricycle blog as I have been looking for a way to hook up with a buddhist community over a distance. I live in an area quite free of sanghas and the ones I might visit from time to time request fees which I, combined with travelling costs, cannot muster.

    I'm quite new to regular practice. I've only really decided to commit to a buddhist path the last three months though I've been listening to dharma talks perhaps the last three years and before that had a passing interest in meditation the past 12 years or so.

    Here at Treeleaf Zendo I hope to find a community within which to deepen my practice.

    I do a lot of voluntary work in organisations concerned with discrimination issues and am quite passionate about it, perhaps a bit too much. In part, that is what has brought me to metta practice.

    All the best,
    em

                        Kelly
                        Live in joy and love, even among those who hate
                        Live in joy and health, even among the afflicted
                        Live in joy and peace, even among the troubled
                        Look within and be still; free from fear and grasping
                        Know the sweet joy of living in the way.
