Ozarks Dharma Community is a Buddhist Meditation Group in Springfield, MO, composed of informal and diverse practitioners. We are dedicated to sharing the Buddha's teachings in a practical way. All are welcome.
We are fortunate that so many wonderful resources are available to us that can encourage us to begin, strengthen, and deepen our practice.
There is a growing body of research documenting the benefits and outlining the basics of a mindfulness practice. These resources are especially for those of us who want to explore meditation without exploring Buddhism, are looking for resources to be used in a non-religious context, or who want to understand meditation from a more evidence-based or clinical perspective.
