The Journey and the Guide

The current series is based on Maitreyabandhu’s The Journey and the Guide. We think it’s a great book, but there is no requirement to have a copy or to read it.

How do we make the most of life? We all want to live a valuable and fulfilling life. We want our lives to be filled with meaning, connection and creativity. The Buddha discovered the key to this, and then communicated it to others. During the eight weeks that we’ll be exploring this theme, you’ll be guided by the Buddha’s vision in an exploration of the fundamental issues of life, facing up to them, finding a way of overcoming them, and uncovering your human potential.

To help build a connection and to support each other in exploring this material, there’s an optional WhatsApp group to join.
