Courses

These informally taught courses are designed to introduce and discuss fundamental Buddhist ideas, mindfulness, ethics and meditation. The mediation is taught and led. People who attend have said, for example, they come because they are curious, want principles to live by and also enlightenment. There are often people who return to introductory courses for a refresher resulting in a wide range of experience present. Those attending are asked to try out practices at home between sessions so they can experience any benefits for themselves. There is no booking, just come along.

There is no fee instead we ask for a donation. To get the most out of a course try and come to all the sessions.

New Year Term

2018 Thursday Course

Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation – Worcester

Thursday Evenings 7:30pm to 9:45pm:  11th January to the 1st March 2018

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 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.

You will find a friendly welcoming atmosphere on our courses and if you can’t make all the sessions you will still be welcome to attend when you can.
