Newcomers’ Classes

Learning about Meditation and Buddhism

The Journey and the Guide
Starts Tuesday 15th January, for eight weeks
From 7pm to 9.15pm
At Leeds Buddhist Centre
How can you make the most of your life?
This eight-week course is for people who would like to explore the five stages or aspects of the Buddhist Path, a path to fulfilling our human potential. We’ll look at each of the stages in turn – what it is and how we can cultivate it in our own life.  We will invite you to try it out for yourself during the course.
The course is based on Maitreyabandhu’s book, The Journey and the Guide, which you can buy from the bookstall at the Buddhist Centre. However, you can do the course without the book.
The course is open to everybody, and no previous experience is needed. People with previous experience will also find it valuable.
There is no need to book. Just come along!
Each evening we will invite donations to enable the Buddhist Centre to continue to offer courses, meditation, study and retreats.
Led by Hridayavaca and Uddyotani.
