Changing Ourselves, Changing Our World

More than just a course. It is like opening a new doorway to reality and greater peace of mind” – past participant

Learn about the Buddha’s vision and the basics of meditation in a friendly foundation course over six Tuesday evenings. As well as an introduction to Buddhist teaching, this course provides practical instruction in two Buddhist meditation practices to develop awareness and positivity.
Six-week courses take place several times through the year, with occasional breaks at holiday times.


The price for the six weeks is £90 standard rate / £60 concessionary / £25 age 18 - 25. Payment still a problem?

What does the Buddhism Foundation Course cover?

We explore who the Buddha was – how he sought an answer to the problem of human suffering, and found it through the experience that Buddhists call Awakening. We’ll ask what this word means and how the Buddha, having found it for himself, found ways of communicating it to others, right down to ourselves, through teachings that apply directly to human beings, independent of time or culture.
