Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I have heard that this is a website where people who practice alternative spiritual systems can discuss and learn from each other in a spirit of tolerance.
About Myself & My Interests..
I'm a vet tech. My native languages are French and English. I'm studying Old Norse and Icelandic. I love dogs and horses especially. My spirit guide is the white wolf. I do music therapy for companion animals.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
I was a Buddhist for awhile and learned a lot about "interbeing" from Thich Nhat Hanh, the Zen master. From him I learned just how very important is compassion. I went on to study my Norwegian and Norman French ancestry and found Asatru. But I'm still quite interested in Zen and Taoism and am searching for a way to sync Zen with Asatru. Update: I'm back to practicing Tibetan Buddhism but am still interested in learning about Asatru, the traditional belief system of my Norwegian ancestors..
