Bodhi Path Buddhism center outside Natural Bridge serves all in the area who are interested in learning more about Buddhist practice. It is one of a network of such centers that take a non-sectarian approach in teaching Buddhism and offer programs both for those who are curious about Buddhism and advanced enthusiasts. Washington and Lee University professors and students have taken advantage of the serene space and local members boast of the benefits of mindfulness practice. As Buddhism becomes more mainstream, academics and regular practitioners weigh in, as you will see and hear in this audio slide show.
