A simple way to study this material is via a small circle or ‘book club’.  The format is simple.  We start and end with a little bit of meditation and then we take turns slowly reading and discussing as we go along.  We set a time limit so that we don’t burn out 🙂 and we enjoy tea at the same time.  People take turns hosting a ‘book club’ meeting.

If you are interested in joining an existing study, starting your own or just wanting to parachute in,  Email Cliff Esler to express interest.  There may or may not be a group in your area but if there is a way to get connected we will try.

Studying the teachings of Buddhism and especially as presented by a master, inspires us to meditate and bring more attention into our lives.  When questions come up on our meditation practice often even random study will help direct us to deeper understandings.  Bringing the two wings of study and practice together is how to accomplish the path.
