All Beings will continue with our reading group! This has been a fun way for folks to get together and talk about the practice in an informal environment, and with tea and cookies!
For Sunday, May 29th, we’re reading How the Swans Came to the Lake, by Rick Fields. It’s an overview of how Buddhism has mingled with ‘western’ cultures and specifically the US. Pretty engaging read, I can assure you, and it should provide ample material for discussion. For the 29th, we’ll focus on the first half of the book, roughly.
We’ll meet at the All Beings Zendo space at 8 am. Contact Inryu for more info if you need it.
Here are some helpful links. Libraries and local bookstores are encouraged, but there’s always used copies on Amazon too.
Hope to see you there! These are both pleasantly serious and engaging and very non-stuffy.
