Welcome to our Book Discussion


Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, Oct 20, from 1:30 – 3:00 on Zoom. Please contact Diane K. for the link, at dkepner2@yahoo.com. We will be discussing Chapter 2, “Does it Matter”, from our new book,  Welcoming the Unwelcome – Wholehearted Living in a Brokenhearted World, by Pema Chodron. This is a Zoom meeting, but in the future we hope to meet in person in the Garden Room at the Dollar Clubhouse every third Wednesday of the month. On that day everyone would be invited to come at 1:00 and bring a lunch for socializing if you like. 

Due to the changing Covid situation, we cancelled the “in-person” meeting at Dollar Clubhouse in October.

               The Buddhist Study Book Discussion Group

The book discussion group first met in November of 2017. The first book we read was The Places That Scare You, by Pema Chodron. Since that first meeting, the group has grown and found its path. We read each title, then take our time discussing it. Everyone who cares to can share about the book; we stay on each chapter as long as members want to talk about it. We help each other understand the Buddhist principles contained in the readings. The discussions are often lively, in depth, and meaningful to participants. All Members of the Buddhist Study Group are welcome to join us.
