Our group follows along with the Upāsikā/Upāsaka program offered by Birken Forest Monastery for the monthly study sessions. The term Upāsikā/Upāsaka refers to dedicated lay practitioners who are interested in a deeper understanding of the Dhamma. The program follows a month(s) long focus on various different themes within the Buddha’s teachings relying on Suttas, commentary by various Ajahns (teachers), and Dhamma talks as outlined by the Upāsikā/Upāsaka program offered by Birken Forest Monastery. As such the discussion is constrained to the topic material offered below.
Our current focus is the Buddha’s teachings on The Four Foundations of Mindfulness. We'll be following along with the pre recorded Virtual Mindfulness Retreat guided by Ajahn Sona.
