Buddhist Meditation & Study Group

Buddhist Meditation & Study Group

Meets: 1st & 3rd Wednesday nights: meditation at 7pm, discussion at 7:30pm
Status: open to church members, friends, & visitors
Facilitators: Lisa Gades, Eric Bodwell

This group is for members and friends interested in exploring meditation techniques and learning more about Buddhism.

  • What are the main ideas in Buddhist philosophy?
  • What are the differences between Theravada, Mahayana, and Zen Buddhism?
  • How has meditation enriched my spiritual practice?
  • And, how do I deal with my racing thoughts while trying to meditate?!?!

These are just a few of the topics that have come up for discussion as we examine Buddhism both from an intellectual and a personal point of view. We typically meditate for 20-30 minutes, then spend 30-40 minutes discussing a book that the group has chosen. Participants are welcome to join us for meditation, discussion, or both.
