About our Programs and Retreats
This is an ongoing group meeting once a month, starting on Tuesday, October 22, to study various topics related to Buddhism. The study may include book study, films, audio talks, and so on. This October we will read Not Everything is Impermanent, by Dharmavidya David Brazier. You can order the book online at Amazon.ca.
Everyone is welcome to participate, regardless of your experience or understanding of Buddhism; and you may join the group at any time. However, once you join, we appre-ciate regular attendance. Participants are responsible for purchasing their own books.
Each book study session will end at 5:00 p.m., followed from 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. by a vegetarian potluck supper, and will conclude with a Tuesday evening stone passing and practice from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. You are welcome to attend which-ever parts work best for you.
