Are you curious about Buddhism and Meditation - PART 2 (start Wed 25 Mar)

This 6 week course is suited for everyone who has attended one of our introductory courses and who knows our 2 meditation practices.

The Buddha suggests we become familiar with how the mind works- How it creates and shapes our perceptions - of ourselves and the world

Using both the Tibetan Wheel of Life and Meditation as a bases for our study, the course will look at how we shape our lives, how we can practise to let go of ways of acting which limit us, and the Buddhist teachings which lead toward living a more positive and responsive life.
