"Thus you should train yourselves: 'We will listen when discourses that are words of the Tathagata — deep, deep in their meaning, transcendent, connected with emptiness — are being recited. We will lend ear, will set our hearts on knowing them, will regard these teachings as worth grasping & mastering.' That's how you should train yourselves."— SN 20.7

The aim is to create a non-dogmatic, safe, deeply relaxing space.  
A space that engenders enquiry about our lives and how we live them in a free, open and non-judgemental environment.

Most of the translations we use come from http://www.accesstoinsight.org
