This Livestream class, led by renowned Buddhist monk Bhante Sujatha, is a blend of meditation, mantra, and discussion. Based on Bhante’s popular Morning Coffee Wisdom email, the class will contain a reflection, followed by group meditation. After meditating, Bhante opens the floor for discussion and questions, based on the day’s reflection. This class is excellent for emotional and mental development and stress relief.
