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

Closure of Leeds Buddhist Centre premises

Dear friends With great regret we have decided to close Leeds Buddhist Centre premises to the public for a while to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus outbreak in view of the government’s guidance. It’s likely that the Buddhist Centre premises will be closed for several weeks. What this means is that from today, Wednesday 18th March, classes are cancelled including Wednesday lunchtime meditation, Friends night on Thursdays and the Saturday day retreat We want to find ways we can stay connected with each other and as a sangha through this time. We are planning to offer some online activities during the closure, and we will send you more information about these through the Dharma Diary email, on the Centre website and Facebook pages.  ...
