Young Buddhists Group
Fri 13th Dec : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Apologies, this event was originally listed for 20th December
A friendly informal group for people in their late teens, twenties and thirties, led by young people for young people. We are supporting one another to deepen our experience of the Dharma, through friendship, events and study. No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before we start. No charge, but as an unfunded charity, we rely on the generosity of people who use and value the Centre to help cover running costs, over £6,000 a week. We will welcome donations on the day and beyond.
What can we rely on?
We’ll be preparing ourselves for the outcome of the election, a new year, and the rest of our lives! Using the image of the mandala, we’ll be exploring the things we rely on in our lives and asking whether these things can really provide the satisfaction we so deeply desire. We’ll also be exploring what Buddhism says we should rely on for deep satisfaction.
7.45 Reflections on our personal mandalas
8.30 We’ll finish at the Centre, but there’ll be an opportunity to go and hang somewhere, at a venue to be confirmed
Who is the Centre’s Young Buddhists Group for?
Anyone aged 18 to 35 who has learned the two meditation practices we teach here – mindfulness of breathing and Metta Bhavana – and is interested in practising Buddhism with other younger people. We usually meet on the third Friday evening of the month. Interested? Just come along to one of our meetings or get in touch with us through reception. The group is currently led by Sanghadhara and Dan Johnston. We also have a YoungBuddhistsMBC group on Facebook.
