Book Club Wednesdays
Wednesdays 7 – 8:15pm
We are currently reading Introduction to Buddhism
Beginning with Buddha’s life story, this concise guide explains the essential elements of the Buddhist way of life, such as understanding the mind, rebirth, karma and ultimate truth, and what it means to be a Buddhist. Meditation is explained clearly and simply as a tool for developing qualities such as inner peace, love and patience. The emphasis throughout is on the practical application of Buddhist ideas and practice to find solutions to everyday problems. Those interested in Buddhism and meditation will find this book a rich source of guidance and inspiration.
For any book lover, one of life’s most profound joys is to open a book and learn from its pages, to seek wisdom, to find joy and to grow.
This one of a kind, spiritual book club will introduce you to texts that you can turn to again and again for inspiration, companionship and deep transformation.
Our book club is led by resident teacher Buddhist monk, Gen Kelsang Tilopa. Each class includes a guided meditation to help reduce stress and generate peace of mind. The teacher then reads a few passages and provides commentary, based on more than 25 years of Buddhist study and meditation practice. To conclude, students enjoy a meaningful discussion and a brief meditation to provide insight into the text.
We look forward to seeing you there!
