In recent decades, many Quakers have been drawn to the study of Buddhist teachings and to the practices of meditation and mindfulness as taught in Buddhism. Valerie Brown, who is both a Quaker and a Buddhist, explores the gifts that Buddhism has to offer Friends in our search for unity with the Divine Ground, for clarity in our worship, and for equanimity in our lives. Writing as a dedicated seeker in both traditions, she identifies the points of commonality as well as the valuable insights and techniques that Friends can derive from a discipline that has developed through more than 2,500 years of practice.
