Participants exploring this chapter will access the essential teachings of Won Buddhism, such as the Threefold Study, Timeless and Placeless Meditation, and the principles of our spiritual practice. Through contemplation, discussion, and open sharing, each gathering will broaden our perspective and understanding of the dharma that are applicable to daily life.
