Young Buddhists: Re-entering the World
Mon 2nd Aug : 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 the Buddhist teachings through friendship, events and study.
Re-entering the World
This evening, open to anyone aged 18-30, will be led by Oskar. He says:
A theme that keeps re-occurring in conversation at the moment is the range of ways that we are adjusting to the recent lifting of restrictions. Some of us are feeling excited, others are overwhelmed, for most of us it’s a mixture of both.
In this first session back at the Buddhist Centre, we will be focusing on this re-adjustment. We will have a chance to talk through our experiences, be guided in some techniques for emotional processing and of course actually meet in person! In keeping with the theme, this will be a gentle session.
All experience levels are welcome and there’s no price to attend, although we do ask that people sign up for the session in advance so that we can keep numbers within a Covid safe limit. Scroll down on this page to sign up..
Feel free to arrive at the Buddhist Centre from 18:45pm onwards, we might also hang around for a bit afterwards to socialise.
Who is the Young Buddhists Group for?
Anyone aged 18 – 30 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.
There’s no need to book. We gather together in the Buddhist Centre lounge about 15 minutes before the start of the session and sometimes hang out together afterwards. It’ll be great to have you with us!
There's no charge to attend this event, 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.
