|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until Sat 8th May, 2021

Virtual Event
Buddha with lotus flower

Friendly and practical online weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation with a different topic each time, usually in themes lasting a few weeks each. For six weeks through to early May, we’re looking at Vision and Transformation. This series is based on Sangharakshita’s The Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path, but there is no requirement to have a copy of the book or to read it.

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 and no need to book. Suryaka, Shakyajata and / or Mahabodhi usually lead the sessions with a team of friends from the Centre, and we'll be here online for the time being regardless of any changes in the opening of the Centre.

Buddhism for the Head and the Heart

Buddhism offers us an inspiring vision of what it means to be a human being, but it doesn’t stop there. It also gives us ways to transform our emotions – and our life – in the light of this vision. With teaching, discussion, meditation and practical exercises, this six-week course will help you deepen your vision, develop more emotional warmth and positivity, and apply the wisdom of Buddhism to all areas of your life.

Supporting the Centre

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 mostly closed means we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please make a regular or one-off donation here. The usual rates for these classes are £6 standard rate or £4 concessionary rate
