Buddhism and Meditation

The theme this time will be the Threefold Path of ethics, meditation and wisdom. As well as an introduction to Buddhist teaching, the day will provide practical instruction in Buddhist meditation practice.

These one-day courses take place around twice a year and cover similar content to the six-week Buddhism level 1 course, although the total class time is of course less. The day is suitable for newcomers to Buddhism and meditation as well as for those who have attended shorter sessions here or learned to meditate in other settings. It may also be of interest to anyone who has attended a similar day with a different theme.
