If you missed the first session, come anyway to other sessions.
We’ll read “The Contemplative’s Craft,” and discuss how we can put the Buddha’s teachings into practice in our daily lives. How can we walk the path? Free books are still available; a PDF is at Abhayagiri.org.

Please be on time to all meditations, talks, and book study so you don’t disturb others.
Meditation for lay people took off in Burma/Myanmar, then spread to Thailand, and in the 1970’s, came here to America. Southeast Asia is at the heart of meditation. Theravada in Olympia bases its methods on the Buddha’s instructions in the suttas. His way lead him to enlightenment.
