Thu, 24 Nov 2011 16:20:20 EST Hi i'm new I am currently looking into both Buddhism and Wicca because I wanted to find a peaceful religion where I can feel like I belong. So far I have started reading the Dhamapada and also a little bit about wicca. I have a very open mind and am open to all religions. Sun, 30 Oct 2011 17:16:20 EST Classic Witch Hello all, namaste, bright blessings and so on. I am an old school witch who lives and practices with a triad, although we may become a quartet... three children who are learning The Craft, as well as a recent housemate who is also rather witchy too. I have been 'casting' my whole life, even as a child, and find it has kept me alive. And sane-ish. <BR> The rest is in my blog. Mon, 27 Jun 2011 18:00:03 EST Namaste! What a wonderful group! I'm so glad I found you! <BR> <BR> My name is Vanessa. I am an eclectic Pagan (a "choose your own adventure" Pagan, if you will) who loves to meditate, learn about new spiritualities and religions of all kinds, and am serious need of some weight-loss motivation.

I've taken the liberty of calling it Magickal New Mexico. Original, I know. <BR> <BR><BR>s_individual.asp <BR> <BR> We have, as near as I can tell, 19 assorted Earth Religion related groups. I can't tell which ones are active and which ones aren't. I can't tell WHO is active and who isn't. And I have ZERO idea of who is local to me and who isn't...

Just thought we could share with each other what we like to do during Spring generally and spiritually. Do you have any traditions? <BR> <BR> Spring is my favorite season as this is when I find it easiest to feel connected w/nature. I love to get outside whenever I can when it is nice out. I am not able to plant an outdoor garden, as I live w/my parents, but I have been growing some herbs and flowers which have meaning to me indoors in pots on ... Tue, 26 May 2009 12:31:55 EST Hi Everyone! Hi, I'm Caron/Xan! I don't fully consider myself pagan or Buddhist, but those paths are what I most strongly lean towards in my seeking.

Sun, 15 Feb 2009 18:25:59 EST Hi All 40+ years veg, but do eat some fish Hi All <BR> My name is AC and I live in the DC area (hence the nickname). I've been a fish-eating veggie (a friend calls this being a vegaquarium) for over 40 years and a spiritualist longer. I've been studying Buddhism for over 20 years. I also have a chronic physical problem that is making my usual exercizes harder and harder. I used to walk an hour a day, bike and swim.

I'm interested in Buddhism and Paganinsm. I'm working on transitioning to a vegetarian diet, and I eat the Flexitarian diet at the moment. Sun, 14 Dec 2008 23:24:06 EST Now I have lyme disease.... I need to be re-centered. It's been so long since I've felt balance. Does anyone else have this, and does it stay with you for long? I am so sick of the fighting with my body, this is one more "pain in the neck"...(get it?), that I just don't need. I'm trying to pick myself up, and just keep getting kicked. Help?! Sat, 30 Aug 2008 14:30:02 EST Hello I'm a newbie and just want to say hi & good luck! <em>241</em> Sat, 23 Aug 2008 10:33:07 EST New My name is Carolyn, and I live in the mountains of Virginia. I'm coming down off of two terribly stressful years that triggered a huge weight gain (from 145 to 185). I've been a vegetarian for 2o+ years, though (obviously) not a very healthy one! I've been reading a great deal about Buddhism this past year, and am looking forward to receiving and sharing any insight others may have regarding the integration of spirituality and healthy living. <BR> <BR> Thanks!

Fri, 18 Jan 2008 08:57:57 EST Centering I guess for me this forum is a way to talk about centering myself spiritually and with eating. I feel like my meditation should help my eating problems but that I must be doing something wrong because it is not working out the way I want it to. I feel like I'm out of control with eating and I can't get any kind of focus on it. Do others have any ideas on how to get this kind of thing under control? Wed, 16 Jan 2008 10:44:03 EST Hello Hi there! My username is avalonphoenix76 and means I'm 31...I'm from the Avalon peninsula of Newfoundland (part of the province of Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada) and I feel akin to the phoenix. It seems with regards to many things in my life I rise from the ashes of an old unhealthy me to begin again. This is also true of my eating habits and weight gain and loss. I'm a yoyo. I'll go through times of being really healthy and then something (or sometimes nothing it seems) will trigger a ... Tue, 15 Jan 2008 11:59:35 EST New to the group Hi everyone, I am a practicing Buddist and a vegan but I have a problem binging on sweets, mostly chocolate. I want to put only healthy things in my body and reach a healthy weight. I try to meditate everyday even if it's just for 10 mins. I would love to hear lots of healthy vegan recipies. Thu, 10 Jan 2008 10:57:54 EST New Hi, <BR> <BR> I am happy to have found this group. I have been on a spiritual path most of my life. I have studied many different paths, but I self identify as a Witch. However, I have strong Eastern tendencies and I am very involved in Yoga, both the Asanas and the path itself. My biggest challenge is incorporating all my practices under one umbrella. I have never quite found a way to blend them so I tend to have several different practices going on. I am into using mantras as a way to shif...
