Dharma Book Club Meetings
Take mid-day break and join us online for a lunch-time get together to talk about books and authors who have written about the Dharma in a variety of genres. Each book will be covered in a single meeting. On occasion, authors will be guest speakers at our meditation practice groups after our book club meeting. Please sign up below to receive a meeting Zoom link and book club questions to consider in advance. Participation in the discussion is optional for those who would prefer just to read our book selection and listen to comments. All are welcome!

About our March Book Club Selection
"With stories from South Central L.A. to the jungles of Peru, these deep, honest reflections by one of the country's most powerful mindfulness teachers focus on compassion as the fiercest and most effective responses to suffering."
From the Publisher
"Amidst uncertain times, we need strong and inspiring medicine. In A Fierce Heart, you will find this medicine: beautiful teachings and heartfelt stories that can transform your day and change your life.”
From the Forward by Jack Kornfield
“A Fierce Heart is a book whose time is an eternal now: sacred help, made beautifully accessible, by the wild and determined spirit of a no-nonsense female teacher, a bodhisattva, brown as Earth, real as Oxygen.”
From the review by Alice Walker
