Theunusualbuddha.comObviously this is us. We are a dark horse start-up looking to create meditation resources that are practical and useful to normal people. We are the team up of an alternative Buddhist, Jim, and, an off the hook Hedge Witch, Nelli D. For more on us check out our about page.Our long term goal is to build up creators of different paths on social media and bring them to the masses, getting their message out in a way to inspire people to follow a path of their choosing. And as long as the “new normal” includes events, we plan to create events for people to gather and share their faiths with eachother… like a Comic Con.We’ll see if that works out
