Before the discussion, the group will view these two videos.
The Noble Eightfold Path - Right Concentration by Ajahn Sona (18 minutes)
The tenfold path -Right Knowledge and Liberation by Ajahn Sona (12 minutes)
Ajahn Sona is a first wave Western Theravāda ordained practitioner. He took full monastic ordination at the first Theravāda monastery in the United States in 1989. His pre-monastic education is in philosophy, humanities, and specifically classical Western music. These have been an aid in understanding the Western psyche and trying to establish paradigm bridges between East and West.
