Thanks for your question. I would echo Rasheed’s comments, about choosing what feels right for you.
I would also add that if you have been inspired by mindfulness, then this draws on the Buddhist path – and a local Buddhist centre might be a place to include in your exploration.
I had a similar quest for spiritual path a few years ago. For me, it was a move from dabbling to being more committed to my development. Key things that I learned:
1. ensure any teacher you might find is psychologically healthy. There are many teachers who have had some advanced spiritual experiences, but with an unhealthy psychological development. This can show up as arrogance, power playing, a lack of humility…in the extreme, abusive patterns. This is sometimes referred to as ‘spiritual bypass’ – where spirituality is used to bypass the necessary work on our ego/mind
2. having access to a good community, which helps to sustain your practice
3. knowing that there is no ‘right’ path, and that your practice is key. There may be times when you will move from one path to the next
4. Reading Ken Wilber really helped – he looked across at many different spiritual traditions (Buddhism, Sufism, Kaballah, Gnosticism, Hinduism etc) and showed their parallels. It was really useful information that helped me to see the similarities and where they were different. He also goes into more detail about the different types of Buddhism (Mayahna, Vajriyana,Theravada), Sufism etc so that you can make a more informed choice about what is right for you. Some say he is quite hard to read. He is a pioneer in integrated spiritual development. I would recommend ‘Integral Psychology’
5. Asking and inquiring is the right thing to do, just as you are…speak to people who are on a path, teaching a path. Also, decide if you would like to make a commitment to a path or just find a path that supports you in your own practice. For a few years, i did the latter, until I became clearer. I use the analogy of education: at first you focus on many areas, you narrow down in A levels, you narrow further at degree level, and then get clear and focussed on what is right for you in advanced studies.
I hope that helps, and I wish you well in your inquiry and finding your path.
