Abhidhammikas come in all shades and varieties. Every moment of life is fit for practice. Many do formal meditation. Many maintain an awareness of the present moment. Study is seen as important, as is Sila.
The home page of Dhamma Study Group states that it is:
A Theravada Buddhist discussion forum for anyone interested in understanding the Buddha's teachings as found in all three baskets of the Tipitaka, the original record of the Buddha's word in the Theravada tradition, and as further elucidated in the ancient commentaries of that tradition.
The discussions include matters of both theory and practice, with the aim of developing precise understanding of dhammas (the 'realities' of the present moment).
