Contemplative Readers in Chicago Message Board › Where and what.

Where and what.

Group Organizer
Chicago, IL
Lucky Strikes is a big place (and, I'm hoping not too loud), but it has gotten good reviews by other Meet-up groups. Look for a place as far in the back and as quiet as possible and look for some small Buddhist prayer flags: that is where I-we will be.

And don't worry if you have not read any or all of Hesse's Siddhartha or Armstrong's Buddha -- my plan is to use Buddhism as a springboard of sorts -- to better appreciating the kind of contemporary books we would find ourselves reading anyway, and maybe to better understanding some of the interesting neurocognitive-type research studies that are being talked about in newspapers and magazines.

Finally, in keeping with our “Big Crayon" approach, I thought that I'd take some liberties with a basic compare-and-contrast overview of Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism.
