Buddhist Monk

Join us to read and discuss books with a Buddhist theme or message. We meet the second Wednesday of each month (except when rescheduled—please check the calendar).

Book Club Format

We read one book each month and then get together to discuss the following:

  • Teachings from the book that had the greatest impact on us
  • Any lingering questions or uncertainties about the book
  • If and how the book impacted our personal spiritual practices
  • How the book relates to other spiritual teachings we have studied or practiced
  • What we liked or disliked most about the book

Current Book

  • Everyday Zen, by Charlotte Joko Beck
  • Discussion: Wednesday, November 21st, 7:00 pm. (Socializing begins at 6:45pm.)

Upcoming Books

To Join the Book Club

The book club is open to all active sangha members and to newcomers sincerely interested in becoming active members. Familiarity with the basic tenets of Buddhism is a prerequisite, as we approach the books from this perspective. If you are new to Buddhism, we suggest first taking an introductory AIM class, which you can find here before attending the book club.

You may sign up for the Book Club at any of the regular AIM meditation sessions. The meditation schedule can be found on the Group Meditation page.

For further information or if you have any questions, please contact our Book Club Coordinator, at bookclub@ashevillemeditation.com.
