What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Sundays, we offer a unique opportunity to explore the core teachings and practices of Shin Buddhism, as a philosophy of life and deep spiritual practice, with one of Connecticut’s most well-known Buddhist teachers, Rev. Daishin Senpai , M.A. Our Online Shin Practice & Talk meetings are enriching occasions to personally engage the Dharma (Buddhism) in a nurturing, gentle, and systematic way.
This week, we will explore Rev. Taitetsu Unno's classic book, "River of Fire, River of Fire. See the above Meetup title for the name of the chapter or join our Facebook group or sign up for our Newsletter on our web site for chapter to be discussed (you don't need to have read anything to enjoy the meeting).
Our Sunday practice includes traditional chants, and quiet sitting meditation, as well as, an exploration of Shin Buddhism from a modernist point of view, which takes into account American culture, neuroscience, the evolutionary sciences and physics, and openly accepts the wisdom of other Buddhist schools and Western philosophy.
Our gatherings include traditional sacred chants and quiet sitting meditation.
