Intro to Buddhism Six-Week Course starts

An In-Person Evening Course, Here at the Buddhist Centre

We're hoping to run this course face to face here, but if Covid arrangements make that unsafe or impossible, it will be online through Zoom.

The Buddha found a way to transform anxiety into ease, hate into love, despair into hope and ignorance into wisdom. He found a path that can be followed all the way to enlightenment and, best of all, he discovered that this path can be walked by anyone. Come and find out how!

As well as an introduction to Buddhist teaching, this course provides practical instruction in two Buddhist meditation practices to develop mindfulness and love. The course covers similar material and is equivalent to the Buddhism Foundation Course, so you can go on to Buddhism Going Deeper Courses after completing this one.

There’s so much difficulty and suffering in the world. It can be overwhelming. In our efforts to help we can end up doing more harm than good, ending up hateful and burned out.
There is another way.
Buddhism teaches us that to transform the world, we need to begin with ourselves. Once we can look inwards, see what’s really going on and cultivate love and awareness, we will begin to change those around us. Join this six-week course to find out how!

As well as an introduction to Buddhist teaching, this course provides practical instruction in two Buddhist meditation practices to develop mindfulness and love. The course covers similar material and is equivalent to the Buddhism Foundation Course, so you can go on to Buddhism Going Deeper Courses after completing this one.

We can Change – Radically!

Can we really find happiness in more and more distraction, and having ever more stuff? Buddhism tells us that this won’t work – but that there is a real happiness to be found, if we look in the right place. You will learn the two most important Buddhist meditation practices, and try out some powerful Buddhist wisdom teachings that can change the way we see the world.

Using a combination of team-teaching, small-group discussion, meditation, and practical exercises, these sessions give us the tools to become more like the person we want to be.

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as we can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed for so long means we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please make a regular or one-off donation here. The usual rates for these classes are £6 standard rate or £4 concessionary rate

Tools for Living your Life, Online: We Can Change

Friendly and practical online weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation with a different topic each time, usually in themes lasting a few weeks each. Tools is staying completely online until the end of August, but may be in-person at the Centre in the autumn, possibly with an online option too.

Everyone welcome, any Saturday

Whether you are completely new to Buddhism and meditation or want to revisit the core teachings in a friendly group, join us for a warm welcome on a Saturday morning. Come once or as often as you like, no need to be here at the beginning of a series and no need to book. Suryaka, Shakyajata and / or Mahabodhi usually lead the sessions with a team of friends from the Centre.
 


We can Change – Radically!

Can we really find happiness in more and more distraction, and having ever more stuff? Buddhism tells us that this won’t work – but that there is a real happiness to be found, if we look in the right place. You will learn the two most important Buddhist meditation practices, and try out some powerful Buddhist wisdom teachings that can change the way we see the world.

Using a combination of team-teaching, small-group discussion, meditation, and practical exercises, these sessions give us the tools to become more like the person we want to be.
