Tools for Living: How we can Change

Sat 6th Jun : 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until Sat 18th Jul, 2020


Can we really find happiness in more and more distraction and having ever more stuff? Buddhism tells us that this won’t work, but that there is a real happiness to be found if we look in the right place.

In this course you will learn the two most important Buddhist meditation practices, and try out some powerful Buddhist wisdom teachings that can change the way we see the world. Team-teaching, small-group discussion, meditation, and practical exercises will give us the tools to become more like the person we want to be.

Everyone welcome, any Saturday

How we can Change is a series of six sessions in our long-running Tools for Living your Life – a weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation, currently online. It’s suitable for anyone and everyone! Whether you are completely new to Buddhism and meditation or want to revisit these core teachings in a friendly group, join us for a warm welcome on a Saturday morning. Come for the whole course or on any Saturday.

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being closed means we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs: we need your help!
