How to Prepare

book

We are studying Buddhist meditation practice in practical terms and the foundational mindset of cessation of suffering as presented by the Buddha. The objective is to give guidance and principles for starting a personal and communal meditation practice with wisdom and principle.

We have meditation cushions and benches as well as comfortable chairs. If you wish to bring you own cushion or bench please feel free to do so. We will sit every week for at least 15 minutes.

We are reading Gil Fronsdal’s book The Path to Liberation which is a study of the The Noble Eight Fold Path, a foundational Buddhist teaching on how to liberate ourselves from suffering. You may want to purchase a copy of the book. It seems to only be available on Amazon.
