Profile Information

About Me:
British female, retired and living in Sardinia. Married, no children. My husband has two grown children living in the UK, so I can officially call myself a wicked stepmother ha. We have three cats.
Faith Background & Affiliation
Raised primarily in the Church of England but not as a practitioner
Occupation or Primary Activity
Now retired, I have worked mostly in customer service, although I also worked for some years in horticulture. My last and favourite job was Front of House Manager in an Arts and Media Centre in the UK
Involvement in Spirituality/Religion
Very little in the past, a general feeling of spirituality which I couldn't quite find the place for. Attracted towards Buddhism back in the UK in the 90's, but because of various personal issues did not pursue it.
What is your interest in Amida-shu
I am now seriously interested in Buddhism but feel quite isolated as I have no-one else to discuss this with, and to be honest a bit confused about all the information out there. To begin with I need a framework in which to explore my beliefs and feelings and some kind of structure. A series of connections led me here.
How did you find this web site?
Through Writing Our Way Home
What country are you living in?
Sardinia Italy
What is the nearest town to where you live? If in UK, please give first half of your postcode. Thank you.
Alghero
Are you a member of an Amida group/Congregation
Would like a group in my area, not at the moment
What can you offer to other members of this network?
A place to stay, Expertise
What other interests do you have, eg Arts, Gardening and so on.
I am interested in the arts in general; literature, cinema, writing, photography and art itself. I practice yoga and meditation, I like to write, I like to communicate with others, I am fairly creative but get greater pleasure out of witnessing the creativity of others, I love to encourage other people to express themselves and communicate. I teach English to friends here. I speak Italian. I consider myself intuitive, open and understanding. I have lots of questions and I'm still looking for most of the answers.
