An exploration and re-configuration of Buddhism based on humanist, naturalist, agnostic values and pragmatism rather than religious beliefs. Secular Buddhism seeks to deploy the Buddha’s teaching as a guide to full human flourishing in this life and this world.

Theravada (pronounced — more or less — "terra-VAH-dah"), the "Doctrine of the Elders," is the school of Buddhism that draws its scriptural inspiration from the Tipitaka, or Pali canon, which scholars generally agree contains the earliest surviving record of the Buddha's teachings.

A place for discussion related to the practice of meditation and other techniques aimed at developing concentration, increasing the power of conscious awareness, and producing insight leading to awakening.

Those here understand Awakening to be a practical and attainable goal that can be approached via many paths. Although this goal is explained most thoroughly in the Buddhist traditions, it can be understood in entirely secular, non-religious terms.

Awakening is something that is difficult to define because it’s characterized more by what is missing rather than what is gained. One might say that it describes a realization of Truth recognized beyond the need for belief.

While there are as many descriptions as there are perspectives, most agree that they fall short of the realization itself—a recognition so profound that it shakes the very bedrock of one’s understanding of the world and oneself.
