When: Wednesdays, with meditation at 7pm and discussion at 7:30pm
Where: Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva
102-112 South Second Street
Group Facilitators: Lisa Gades and Eric Bodwell
This group is for members and friends interested in exploring meditation techniques and learning more about Buddhism.
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 20-30 minutes, then spend 30-40 minutes discussing a book that the group has chosen. Participants are welcome to join us for meditation, discussion, or both.
- 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?!?!
