The group had a good discussion based on "What the Buddha Taught". It was decided that everyone would read another book, this time focusing on the confluence of the findings of neuroscience and Buddhist teachings. The book is "Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom" by Rick Hansen and Richard Mendius. I described this book on my blog a week or so ago. The date for the book discussion is November 2d. Bring your questions, and explore the practical meditative teachings in the book in the interim.
I also announced that we have entered into a lease for space for a permanent location in Artspace at 230 South 5th West. Diane and I are working with a designer to get the space ready. We are excited and will keep you up to speed as it progresses. This is a big commitment for us, but we have a sense that there is a supportive sangha waiting to coalesce.
See you next week,
