9:00am CT, Thursdays - 60 minutes (7am PT/8am MT/9am CT/10am ET)
23 July - 27 August
Each week we will read a short story/koan from Buddhist teachers and writings (ancient to modern times), contemplate/meditate together in silence, and then discuss what this story means for us in our lives today. An engaging way to bypass the analytical mind and learn more about ourselves and our intentions.
If you miss a session - they're recorded and available within 48 hours.
