Next Tuesday we will be discussing the final three steps on the Eightfold Path that comprise the concentration section of the path: right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration. This part of the path calls us to develop the concentration and steadyness that we will require if we are to develop wisdom.

6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
