Our Dharma Study Group

 

 

 

In this weekly session, we participate in group study and discussion of a Dharma text from our lineage. We pick texts that are of interest to both new and long-term students, and we generally alternate between introductory material and more advanced topics. Our objective is to stimulate discussion about the Dharma and how it applies to our everyday lives. The study group is a great place for beginners to start as there are many opportunities to ask questions of more experienced practitioners. We begin each session with a period of sitting meditation. Please feel free to attend any one or more classes. New participants are welcome at any time.
