About this workshop:

This isn't your average book club. We are an enthusiastic community open to the public that meets monthly to deepen our meditation practice with this hybrid mindfulness meditation book club / meditation group!

Here’s how it works: We pick a book and gather once a month to read excerpts, practice the methods from the book, and discuss how it relates to our daily life. These books and group discussion will help us deepen our mindful practices.

***You do not have to have read the book in advance! In fact, we'll be handing out the book the day of the book club, although you are free to pickup your book ahead of time.

We simply read the book club's selection and then get together to discuss the following:

- Teachings from the book that had the greatest impact on us
- Literary themes, motifs, and symbolism
- If and how the book impacted our personal practice
- How the book relates to other teachings we have studied or practiced
- Highlights and lowlights
- Any lingering questions or uncertainties about the book
