Are you Willing to Attend Class fairly Consistently in the beginning weeks, to strongly develop your sitting meditation ? To comprehend an ancient, yet rebellious, iconoclastic teaching in a liberal, modern format - directly applied to your "Self"?

Yes, absolutely. In fact, it's part of our recovery program.

Do you know what Group Meditation always offers ? - it's the very necessary deeper "immersion-time experiences" so often missing in somewhat shorter 'lite' meditation sittings. Sit a bit longer, see much deeper, see with more clarty, feel better.


Did'ya know that Buddhism is really NOT a 'religion' ? Buddha just pointed a Way, a Path to try. No promises. No sin, just our ordinary, un-aware, un-kind ego-mind... Be willing to encounter an Atheistic 'Buddhism' without ANY 'Beliefs' whatsoever !


QUESTION: "Does a Cow have Buddha Nature" ?... ANSWER: "Mooo" ! ! ! ( 'Mu' means 'Nothing' in ancient Japanese )

Well... I think the question is meant for levity, yes?? But just in case, I'll ponder the question "mindfully" and if asked later will be prepared. Hopefully. :)


Late 30's, female, currently on state disability as I recover from a systemic fungal/bacterial infection. Stress and my old lifestyle were key factors in the development of this illness. I have been prescribed "mindfulness" training by my docs.
