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.

Doorway to the Deep (start Thu 26 Mar 2020)

An intensive meditation course for those with at least 6 months experience and a daily meditation practice.

If we dive deep enough into the sea, we reach a depth where the body is no longer buoyant enough to float nor heavy enough to sink. We remain suspended, hanging in deep blue space, able to move in any direction without the least bit of friction. This place is called the doorway to the deep and it promises to open us to our true nature, our deepest potential when freed from afflictive mental states that bind us to suffering, by either taking us back to the surface or pulling us under. From this place we discover a more creative response to life, full of awareness, love and transformation.

This course includes a day retreat on Sunday the 19th of April.
