Tools for Living your Life Special!

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

Shrine with Buddha and Three Peaks

A weekly practical and friendly introduction to Buddhism and meditation, with a variety of teachers covering a theme that runs for a few weeks. No need to book or bring anything special, just turn up a few minutes before – we start on time!

£6 full rate or £4 low rate if you can, depending on your circumstances and income
• We don’t want to turn anyone away. If you can’t afford the charges, then have a word with us - we’ll try and help
• Please make sure you arrive in good time so the class isn’t disturbed by latecomers. We'll do our best to be flexible if you're delayed, but can't admit anybody more than five minutes after the start time

A Special Session of Tools Today

On 6th July, as a one-off, Tools for Living your Life will join another, longer, event here, called A Marathon of Practice. Join us for:

11 am: Meditation practice and enquiry led by Sundeep – overcoming the challenges, finding the joy in our meditation practice
12 noon: What are the conditions that help our practice? A light and humorous exploration with a play! Led by Sarasuvanna, Alison and Catherine

1 pm onwards: The play is followed by a shared lunch and a lot more. Everyone from Tools is welcome to stay on for as long as you like – see the Practice Marathon running order

More about these Buddhism and Meditation Sessions

We mostly look at how Buddhism and meditation might help in our everyday lives, and around half the time will be spent in meditation, with full instructions and guidance. It’s a great way to check out whether you’d like to sign up for an evening course in Buddhism and meditation, or just a great start to your weekend! Read about our approach to Buddhism and the kinds of meditation we teach. The sessions are usually grouped around a theme over a month or so of Saturdays, but there is no need to come to all of them or to start at the beginning, even if you’re here for the first time. Each session stands alone and will always start with a recap when it’s needed.
