Wake Up! – Intro to Buddhism Six-Week Course starts

Tue 4th May : 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Virtual Event
£25 – £90

As we emerge from a dark, cold, pandemic winter, now is the time to ask some important questions.

Are you sleepwalking through life?

Are you making the most of your limited time alive?

Do you want to wake up? Really wake up?

Difficult times can help us to see things more clearly, that we’re capable of more, we’re capable of waking up.

Join us on this six-week introduction to Buddhism course, we’ll explore how the Buddha woke up and the essential foundations of his teaching. As well as an introduction to Buddhist teaching, this course provides practical instruction in two Buddhist meditation practices to develop mindfulness and love.
