Greetings members of the clergy!
I'm looking to create a database of resources on various forms of meditation. This can be books, websites, youtube videos, you name it! I have a few documents in hand (such as the dharma studies unit on meditation), on top of the resources already available within the library, but think that if we get enough material together we could potentially have a course on meditation.
On top of this, if this database catches anyone's fancy, I'd be keen to establish a librarian of meditation within the seminary team to specialize in this with the potential of the position expanding in the future. Send me a PM if you'd like more information.
For now though, let's get see what resources you folks come up with!

I'd be happy to contribute to the above.

I've created a few variations of Alchaka which I personally make use of, ranging from the use of common playing cards to Bo' spinning. A few other temple members have previously requested video resources or demonstration on the above, but it slipped my mind up till' now.

I don't have much going on this weekend, so I'll see about creating at least one video or eBook to get started.

Remember the doctrine; embody the code.
Live the creed; embrace the 16 teachings.
Honor your vows.

As promised, here is the eBook I put together in reference to the above post.

Alchaka & You - A Jedi's guide to object based meditation

I hope it's somewhat helpful, enjoy!

Dogen's "Fukan Zazengi"- a classic distillation.


Chih-I's "Stopping and Seeing"- also an older classic, and central to the development of Chinese Buddhist Meditation.

The Force is with you, always.
