Twice a month, we explore the core teachings and practices of Buddhism as a philosophy of life. Our Practice & Talk meetings are a great way to learn about traditional Buddhism, for our 21st century context, in a nurturing, gentle, and systematic way.
Our Practice & Talk meeting is divided in a three main segments: Reflection, Meditation, and Talk & Discussion. The first segment of the Sunday morning practice focuses on a couple of standard and short Buddhist rituals like going for refuge and a reciting a responsive reading; the second segment stresses meditation practices, which include voice and sitting meditation plus sutra (scriptural) chanting; the third portion of the Practice & Talk meeting is devoted to an intellectual engagement with the teachings. During this segment, there is no lecturing or sermonizing; participation is important but not required. The talk can be a discussion of a reading, a formal talk but it is always includes discussion and Q & A. The session becomes a learning experience for everyone including the teacher.
