Wake Up! Six-Week Buddhism and Meditation Course starts, for 18 – 30s

Tue 28th Apr : 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Alarm Clock

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 real happiness to be found if we look in the right place.

Over six Tuesday evenings, in a group of people aged 18 – 30, we will learn two Buddhist meditation practices to develop mindfulness and positivity and try out some powerful Buddhist wisdom teachings that can change the way we see the world. Using team-teaching, small-group discussion, meditation and practical exercises, this course gives us the tools to become more like the person we want to be.

After completing the course, you can move on to our Going Deeper courses, or maybe think about taking your practice deeper on the Sub30 Weekend Retreat, at Adhisthana in Herefordshire, as well as attending Buddhist festivals and many other events here.


The price for the six weeks is £25. Payment still a problem? As a small unfunded charity, the Centre relies on the generosity of people who come here, but we don't want to turn anyone away from our courses. Please contact the Centre Team on 0161 834 9232 or info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we'll work something out with you.
