Exploring the Dharma Together
There are several weekly and monthly informal study groups, based around different Buddhist or Zen texts. These involve reading some passages out loud and discussing them as a group in order to understand how they apply to our lives and meditation practice. Everyone is welcome to drop in to any of them, with no special commitment.
Explore the koans in the "Blue Cliff Record", with Neti Parekh, in the zendo. A koan will be posted on the bulletin board the week before, with copies available. Anyone may attend any of the sessions, free of charge.
Addiction affects all of us whether we're still using substances, have stopped using, or know someone who uses. Join us to explore what we need to hold on to and what we can let go of. This gathering of supportive Sangha Members includes meditation and discussion.
