Attend, Practice & Learn

Twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Sundays*, we explore the core teachings and practices of Buddhism, as a philosophy of life and deep spiritual practice, that blends classic Buddhism with novel Shin Buddhist teachings, with one of Connecticut’s most well-known Buddhist teachers, Rev. Daishin Senpai, M.A.  Our Online Practice & Talk meetings are enriching occasions to personally engage the Dharma (Buddhism) in a an innovative, gentle, and meaningful way. Our in-person meetings at Wesleyan University include meditation, sacred chants, incense offering, and so much more. Open to the general public, beginners, and veteran practitioners alike.

This week, we will be exploring the Rev. (Dr.) Taitetsu Unno’s modern classic, “River of Fire, River of Water”.  Visit our Meetup or Facebook groups to learn about the chapter to be discussed; the chapter will be named in the title of the event’s announcement.  Also, you can click on our Connect tab, to sign-up for our newsletter.  Remember, you don’t need to read anything to attend and enjoy the meeting.
