"A Sangha is a community of friends practicing the dharma together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness." -- Thich Nhat Hanh.

In a nutshell, that's what this book group aims to do: to form a sangha where we help each other along the path of enlightenment, awareness, mindfulness, Nirvana, or however you may call it. Each month we'll discuss a book on Buddhism, meditation, and/or mindfulness. The goal is to cast a wide net across these ancient practices, approaching the path at different angles, and learning how to incorporate them into our daily lives.

Join Lorenzo and friends VIRTUALLY* every last Thursday of the month 6p - 7p.

Don't forget! Book group selections are 10% off when purchased at WORD. 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK GROUP LEADER

Lorenzo Gerena is an amateur reader trying to go pro. He tends to read post-modern fiction (Pynchon, Vonnegut, Burroughs), or books on Buddhism, meditation, and spirituality. He's also a big fan of poets like Mary Oliver, William Carlos Williams, and Walt Whitman.
