This group is for anyone interested in Buddhism. Fredericksburg and surrounding areas are home to several wonderful meditation groups. This meetup is designed to further nurture a sense of community "off the cushion" so to speak, through book discussions, social gatherings including dinner out, dharma movie nights, and "field trips" to area Buddhist temples, museum/art exhibits, retreat centers, special service projects, etc.

The Buddha spoke specifically about the importance of spiritual friends.  This group aspires to serve as a vehicle for helping local Buddhists cultivate such friendships.
