We are now reading the book "It's Easier than you Think" by Sylvia Boorstein.
Using delightful and deceptively powerful stories from everyday experiences, Buddhist teacher Sylvia Boorstein demystifies spirituality, charts the path to happiness through the Buddha's basic teachings and develops a realistic course toward wisdom and compassion. A wonderfully engaging guide, full of humor, memorable insights, and love. Join us for weekly book discussion after meditation.
