Young Buddhists: Building Spiritual Habits

Mon 10th Jan : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Red sky

A Friendly Informal Group for Young Adults over Eighteen

During this session, open to anybody aged 18-30, Oskar and James explore the intersection between spiritual principles (such as mindfulness, compassion, and generosity) and the science of behaviour change.

How can we transition these principles from abstract intellectual understandings to pragmatic and tangible actions within our daily routines?

This session outlines how we can make significant changes in our spiritual lives if we start small and set realistic goals for ourselves. We’ll clarify some of the pitfalls many people fall into when trying to cut out negative behaviours and talk about helpful strategies for building positive ones. The techniques and concepts introduced may be applied to our own lives to help build and maintain a strong mindfulness practice in 2022.

There’ll also be a chance to meditate together, discuss the topic in small groups, and just spend time with one another. Whether you’re new to Buddhism and meditation or more experienced, you’re more than welcome to join us!

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 Dharma, through friendship, events and study.

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, although this month it’s the second and fourth Monday instead. 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!
