Hybrid Hybrid Event
Fairy Lights at night

A friendly and practical weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation, with the option of joining us online or attending in-person at the Centre. We cover a different topic each time, usually in series lasting a few weeks each.

Everyone welcome, any Saturday

Whether you are completely new to Buddhism and meditation or want to revisit the core teachings in a friendly group, join us for a warm welcome on a Saturday morning. Come once or as often as you like, no need to be here at the beginning of a series. Suryaka, Shakyajata, Suryasraddha and / or Mahabodhi usually lead the sessions with a team of friends from the Centre.

The Buddha’s Teaching on Creating Community

This four-week course explores why the Buddha suggests that generosity, kindly speech, exemplification and meaningful activity are what bring into being a real and lasting experience of community. A community that leads to transformation – of ourselves and the world around us.

Come to the Centre or Join us Online

Around half of us come to Tools for Living here at the Centre, and half join in online from home. We're now inviting you to attend the class either in-person or online without needing to book, and the price is the same for both options. Whichever way you come, please be here in good time for a prompt and comfortable start.

£6 standard rate or £4 concessionary rate

Problem paying? We don't want to turn anyone away. If you are unable to pay the suggested rates, please contact the Centre Team on info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we'll work something out with you.
