Description:

For this swap, you will take some time to study and/or review the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path, which is an early summary of the path of Buddhist practices leading to liberation from suffering and unhappiness.

While I have practiced Christianity to include forms of Protestantism and Catholicism, I have become more interested in the study of Buddhism and how it can apply to and enhance my life.

This path consists of:

  • Right understanding
  • Right thought
  • Right speech
  • Right action
  • Right livelihood
  • Right effort
  • Right mindfulness
  • Right concentration

For this swap, you will take some time to learn/review these concepts. Then, you will write a letter to your partner describing how you would, do or envision applying these principles in your life. You should have one sentence per path or a minimum total of eight sentences.

While you will send flat mail, I’m making this swap a Type 3 because some study, work and contemplation is involved. You can start this swap when you sign up if you’d like to begin before partner is assigned.

Here are some resource links:
