Welcome to the Yahoo! Zen Forum.
I have one question: Why do you consider Quakerism a LIBERAL form of
Christianity? I would think it would be classed as a very CONSERVATIVE

Subject: [Zen] Namaste- first message
HI, I am new here, and I would like to give a little introduction.
I am 38, and I have been meditating on and off for about two years, reading
about Zen for about 10. I find that zazen helps with my Obsessive Compulsive
Disorder, and while I don't want to go into too many details about that,
they key is the fear of uncertainty. the fact that Zen embraces uncertainty
is what appeals to me.
I am nominally Christian, but I lean towards the more liberal end, i.e.
Quaker or even further. I see Christianity's strength being in its ethical
system, at least when properly applied. I would become even more involved
with Zen, sadly there is no real Zendo near where I live.
Anything else anyone would like to know?
