    Exploring the Buddha's Wisdom:
    A Dharma and Meditation Group

    Tuesdays starting October 3

    7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

    This weekly drop-in group is for anyone, from beginner to advanced, who is interested in the wisdom teachings of the Buddha. Each class will feature a talk by class facilitator Jeremy Graves about dharma and the spiritual path, a meditation period, and an opportunity for questions and discussion. We will explore how this path of meditation, morality, and insight leads not only to greater effectiveness and peace of mind, but ultimately to complete freedom from the habitual thoughts and behaviors that make us unhappy. This class will help give you the toolkit you need to achieve the freedom that the Buddha talked about. Our perspective on spiritual practice will be pragmatic and scientifically-informed - after all, extraordinary claims require require extraordinary evidence - but we will also keep an open-minded attitude to the possibilities of personal transformation.

    Jeremy Graves is bestselling co-author of the meditation manual The Mind Illuminated, which was shortlisted for the 2016 Eric Hoffer Book Award Grand Prize. A practitioner of mindfulness for over a decade, he has spent roughly two years meditating in intensive retreat. During that time, he studied one-on-one with the well-known meditation master Culadasa and later completed Culadasa’s rigorous three-year meditation teacher's certification. Jeremy has led and facilitated retreats across the country. He also offers individual and group meetings both in-person or online.

    One Bright Hour

    One Bright Hour

    “Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Amidst the difficulties and divisions that face our country and the world, join us to create a space of refuge and a spirit of hope. Each of us is an unbounded source of inner wisdom and love, with enough power to heal ourselves and those around us. These innate qualities can be awakened and strengthened by gathering together with an intention to meaningfully connect with others in an open and inclusive way.

    Everyone is welcome at this hour of meditation, reflection and conversation aimed at growing our capacity to love and act wisely, even in this most trying of times.
