MIDWEST SKEPTICS SOCIETY:
"Atheism, Buddhism and Meditation" by Mick Goodman this coming Sat, Nov 12, 7pm at Perkins. Mick gave an
interesting talk a few months back on his journey to becoming an atheist. I'm sure this one will be equally as good. JOIN US! We'll go out afterwards for more chat at a local pub.
After an overview of basic Buddhist concepts from a Western point of view and the story of the Buddha, we'll explore the practice of Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation and how it relates to the acceptance of reality and rejection of belief. A couple of books will be reviewed, Buddhism Without Beliefs and Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist, both by Stephen Batchelor, a former Buddhist monk.
>>>Afterwards we will go out for drinks and more conversation at a nearby joint. This is always a great topper for the night.<<<
