Carrboro Buddhist Study and Meditation Group


Chapel Hill, NC
Hometown: Chapel Hill

Organizer since:

November 5, 2010

Have you studied or been exposed to Buddhism in the past?

I've lived in California studying and practicing at two retreat centers - Vajrapani Institue and Land Of Medicine Buddha. I studied with Ven. Rene Feusi, one of the foremost Western yogis who taught me how teachings must be applied to daily life. Among my other teachers are Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Geshe Gelek at the Kadampa Center in Raleigh.

What are you hoping to gain through joining our group?

Hoping to create a Dharma community of practitioners on the same path.

We are a traditional Buddhist study group where we study a topic, discuss and meditate? Is that something that is agreeable to you?

I believe all events should be free of charge. However, Meetup has recently upped their fees. If you're able, would you contribute whatever you can ($5-10 max)? Click on "Chip in" on the main page. No funds used for personal gain. Many thanks.

I've been a Buddhist practitioner for close to two decades. Buddhism has changed my life - my precious gurus Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Vene René Feusi have been like an atom bomb on my attachments. I also teach classes at Kadampa Center in Raleigh.
