When: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays, with meditation at 7:00pm and discussion at 7:20pm
Group Facilitators: Lisa Gades and Eric Bodwell
This group is for members and friends interested in exploring meditation techniques and learning more about Buddhism.
What are the main ideas in Buddhist philosophy?
What are the differences between Theravada, Mahayana, and Zen Buddhism?
How has meditation enriched my spiritual practice?
And, how do I deal with my racing thoughts while trying to meditate?!?!
These are just a few of the topics that have come up for discussion as we examine Buddhism both from an intellectual and a personal point of view.
We typically meditate for 20 minutes, then spend ~40 minutes discussing a book that the group has chosen.
Participants are welcome to join us for meditation, discussion, or both.
Our Current Book: The Book of Joy by The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu
Our Next Book(s): TBD
