Digital scrapbook of a part-time Buddhist.
Dharma | mirror is a collection of idea’s, links, notes and writings related to my main interests; long distance running, Zen, Buddhism, Taoism, Silence, literature and music. Do not expect big articles or in-depth discussions since your looking into my digital scrapbook.
I am a No Meat Athlete, Ultra-runner and part time Buddhist. I live with my wife and kids in the city of Hamburg, in the north of Germany. I am co-founder of Speicher 210 and wingu where I work as CTO.
What is Ultra Running? Ultra Running is the sport of long distance running or ultra-marathoning. The standard definition is anything past the marathon. The shortest standard distance that’s considered an ultra is the 50 kilometer distance. Some races go wide over 100km or go for several days. No Meat Athlete ? yep, I am doing this on a plant-based diet.
Part time Buddhist? I consider myself a Buddhist without believes, part-time Buddhist or secular Buddhist. Buddhism without Buddhism. An non-religious Buddhism rooted in human meanings rather than in fantasies of the sacred. Next to Buddhism I am also interested in Zen and Taoism. I like to get my mind going on the various Zen complexities and Buddhist, Taoism concepts.
