Introduction to Buddhism - The Wheel of Life (start Wed 6 June)

How we act determines how we live our lives. Yet most of our actions are the repetition of unconscious habits.

The Wheel of Life, a Buddhist Symbol, articulates how we habitually re- become ourselves and why. Our study will introduce fundamental Buddhist ideas.

Through our exploration we will more fully understand ourselves and together learn how we might start to change our unproductive habits to choose happier more fulfilling lives.
