Since only Emily and three new people showed up last Sunday, I decided to hold off on discussing lasts week’s topic until this week. Please remember that as a community, we really do rely on each of you to a) read and think about the posts for the week and b) to do the suggested practices and c) to participate in the discussions. If you need some motivation, perhaps think about how your efforts help strengthen and support not only your well-being, but the well-being of others in the community! This forum is open to all of you to post any questions or reflections you have about practice.
So, please, for this week, here is the post we would like you to read and prepare to discuss on Sunday. If you are newer to practice, this post will give you some helpful background information for our journey through the Buddha’s teaching about the Eightfold Path.
