Tools for Living: Loving Kindness with Ratnaguna
Sat 27th Aug : 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
A friendly and practical weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation, with the option of joining us online or attending in-person at the Centre - no need to book ahead. We cover a different topic each time, usually in series lasting a few weeks each, and each session includes a period of led meditation.
Our theme through July and August is Loving Kindness and we’re welcoming a number of guest teachers. Today, Ratnaguna returns after leading a very popular session last month. He is a very experienced teacher, a long-time member of the Triratna Buddhist Order and author of The Art of Reflection.
Everyone Welcome, any SaturdayWhether 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 most Saturday mornings. Come once or as often as you like and there's no need to be here for the beginning of a series - each session stands alone and we always start with a recap. Although Shakyajata, Mahabodhi and/or Suryasraddha usually lead the sessions, some great guest teachers will be leading in July and August, along with the usual team of friends from the Centre.
