New Online Course: Exploring Buddhism and Buddhist Practice

5 Tuesday evenings, starts Tuesday 13th October 7 pm – 8.45 pm. Last class 10th November. Booking required This course is for people who are new to Buddhism and meditation, and also for people who are new to the Triratna Buddhist Community. On this course we’ll look into how we get blown around by circumstances in our daily lives. We’ll explore how Buddhist meditation and practice might help us to find meaning and purpose in our lives. The course will be online on Zoom. We’ll have a break in the middle of each class. We’d recommend the book ‘Sailing the Worldly Winds’ by Vajragupta, which the course will be based around. However, it is not necessary to read the book to do the course. We’d like you to come every week, and we will recommend you do some activities at home in between the classes. If you know you will miss more than one week of this course, we suggest you join a future course instead. Our Buddhist Centre is here through the generosity of people who have taken part in it in the past. At each class we will invite donations to keep the Buddhist Centre open for other people in the future Booking required, as places are limited. To book your place, email enquiries@leedsbuddhistcentre.org... Read more
