Introductory session on Sunday, February 26 at 11:30 in the Stearns Room. (Steve is away but will be joining us via Zoom.)
Regular meeting dates are the first and third Sundays of March and April (March 5 and 19, April 2 and 16), 7:00 – 8:30 pm. In the Stearns Room (and also on Zoom?).
Buddhism offers a deeply intuitive roadmap for understanding the joys and sufferings woven through life, within our own hearts and in the world around us. Many of its core teachings easily find harmony with other religious worldviews, including Christianity. In this four session introduction and overview, we will look at the history of Buddhism and learn its core teachings, explore how these basic principles can enhance our happiness, wisdom, and compassion, and practice cultivating mindfulness-based meditation. All interested participants are welcome!
