Mon 5th Jul : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A Friendly Informal Group for Young Adults over Eighteen

Led by young people for young people, we are supporting one another to deepen our experience of Buddhism, through friendship, events and study.

Surrendering to the Mystery of Life

This month’s session will be led by Tom, he says:

There are many different ways of approaching spiritual practice; one that particularly inspires me is the approach of surrender. Through this approach, we identify the ways in which we’re trying to control our experience and the world, then we let them go (as best we can!) Although this isn’t always easy, I’ve found it to be an incredibly rich way of living. I find that when I let go, life’s mystery, beauty and connection opens up more and more.

During the evening, I’ll be leading us in meditation, reflection and discussion. I hope that together we’ll see some of the ways that we approach life with a closed, scared and controlling heart and that from there we can open up and begin to experience some of the incredible fruits that come with it!

Who is the Young Buddhists Group for?

Anyone aged 18 – 35 who is interested in exploring and practising Buddhism with other younger people. We meet on the first and third Monday evening of the month. Interested? Just come along to one of our meetings or get in touch with us through the Centre. We also have a Manchester Young Buddhists Group on Facebook.

Getting the most out of Zoom
• Our online events are friendly and participative, often with opportunities to ask questions and share your own experience. Do turn your camera and microphone on if you can!
• If a session doesn't start on time, please give it a few minutes, there may be a sudden problem at our end
• If you have any accessibility needs that might stop you from attending our zoom sessions, do get in touch with us at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk. We'll do what we can to remove any accessibility barriers

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as we can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed for so long means we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
