  • Women's Early Eastern Spirituality — in July 2006 this webring appears to be gone. It had Buddhist topics as well as others; biography, poetry, stories, songs, essays, art... from women and about women of the Ancient East. Before that it was called "Early Women Masters in Buddhism, Taoism, Shinto & Zen." A remnant still exists on the Nonduality Salon.
