We have learned that having a common topic or theme for the year has helped give continuity across the various IMC-L programs. The current focus for our sangha’s study is “Deepening our Practice on and Off the Cushion”. What we do on the cushion informs what we do in our lives, moment to moment, and that what we study off the cushion helps direct some of our meditation in addition to the path we take in our daily lives. We think this focus will provide an opportunity to look at how to bring our meditation into our lives, as well as how to become more skillful while meditating on the cushion.
