Wednesday Book Club

Wednesdays: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Sitting meditation begins at 7 o’clock. Book study and discussion begin at 8 o’clock.

We use an “active learning” format where we read a portion of the book then stop and discuss it before moving on. The goal is to learn not only from the book but also from each other and learn from where we are.
