A Path to Freedom: Six-Week Buddhism and Meditation Course starts

Tue 11th Jan : 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

£25 – £90
Rising sun over mountains

We can often feel restricted and trapped. By our own unhelpful habits, by the difficulties and suffering in the world, by a lifestyle that doesn’t reflect who we are or who we want to be.

This feeling can be the start of something new, it’s the realisation that there must be more.

The Buddha taught that there is more, that we don’t have to settle for a limited, restricted life. He taught that by working directly with our mind through meditation, reflection and kind deeds, we can enter into a way of being that is infinitely creative, loving and expansive. He also taught that we don’t have to do this by ourselves! We can join a community of like minded people who help one another along this path of growth.

Join us for this course to find out how to start out on this Path to Freedom.

An In-Person Introductory Course at the Buddhist Centre

Join us for this six-week course, which will go ahead in-person at the Buddhist Centre, as long as restrictions allow this. We’ll join together, form a trusting community and learn about the Buddha’s journey. A key part of the course will be in-depth teaching about the two main meditation practices we teach here at the Buddhist Centre. Perfect for those completely new to meditation, as well as those who are already somewhat familiar.

The price for the six weeks is £90 standard rate / £60 concessionary / £25 age 18 - 25. Payment still a problem? These are very difficult times for us, and through the pandemic we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs. However, we don't want to turn anyone away from our courses. Please contact the Centre Team at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we'll work something out with you.

Bookings will close at 3 pm on the day the course starts
