8-fold path study group

Second Tuesday of each mouth

Everyone is welcome to join this group. This is your chance to delve deeper into the foundations of Buddhist teaching & to develop a greater understanding of the 8 Fold Path. It would be most helpful if you can read the chapter we are working with for that particular week from the book: eight mindful steps to happiness Ven. Henepola Gunaratana before each meeting.[see email below] Write down any questions you may have as you are reading & highlight areas you would like to discuss further. This will be a wonderful opportunity for us as a group to discuss how The Path applies in our own lives, our understanding of the 4 Noble Truths & to share of our own experience of the principle of kamma (karma) or cause & effect.

If you do not have the book mentioned above please consider going to http://www.meditationlearningcenter.com/articles/article/6480935/170083.htm for more information about the 8 Fold Path.

 

We will be meeting the 2nd Tuesday of each month at (1030 west 9th Street, Mesa AZ 85201). The meetings will be 7-9pm.  The sessions are free, but a traditional offer of dana (a free will offering) to our teacher for his time is always welcome. We will start with a short meditation so please arrive on time or quietly.
