An Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation

Thursday Evenings 7:30pm to 9:45pm: From the 7th September 2017 until the 26th November

This introductory course is open to anyone interested in exploring Buddhism and Meditation. We will be looking at two meditations, one to develop increased awareness (mindfulness) and one to increase positive emotion (basically to increase kindness to ourselves and others). 
Also we will also be looking at a very ancient text, the Dhammapada, to help us get a feel for the fundamentals of Buddhism. 
The Buddha offered his teachings as an invitation without any compulsion to take on what he was saying, this course is offered in the same spirit.
