This past week, Michael led our Sangha in an exploration of the ever-present idea of “self” and all the identifications and attachments that entails. In particular, he looked at traditional Buddhist concepts and how they have evolved in our modern world.

You might want to think of beliefs, even traditional Buddhist beliefs, that you have set to the side, and why.
More notes coming soon.
