Steemit- Here I am :-)
Hello Steemians! My name is Zen. I get asked if thats my birth name all the time and yes, it is. My Mum called me Zen and its led me to a study of what it means. An in depth, experiential study. Its also led me to the beginning of a career as a meditation teacher.
Its just in my nature to want to get to the bottom of things, to really understand what they're about. Perhaps that's my Scorpio nature. Maybe its just what makes me tick. Either way, I'm very serious about uncovering truth.
Im also a lover of beauty- I believe that we humans are noble creatures at our core, full of beauty. I endeavour to create beauty with my life, and so I play guitar and perform with fire. Or play with fire and perform with a guitar, it depends on the occasion. Of course life is not all full of beauty but thats truth and thats beautiful.
I live in South Africa, on the south coast of the Zulu Kingdom. I've lived all over SA, travelling a lot as I grew up. I spent the first few years of my life living in Sri-Lanka and India while my Mum studied alternative medicine, so I've grown up learning all about wholistic medicine, acupuncture points, spiritual healing, meditation and homeopathy. My family and I are Buddhist.
I have four little half siblings (who I love with all my heart) and am the eldest by ten years so I do my best to be a good example and thats a blessing. Here they are-
And finally I also spend a few days a week as assistant manager at Rocky Ridge Music Venue, a lovely venue that hosts a wide range of South Africas talented musicians (and occasionally some international ones).
Hooray, I'm glad to be on Steem and hope to make a positive contribution to the community.
