Thursday Classes

Regulars
Thursdays,  7.30pm – 9.45pm

We are looking at Ritual and Devotion as part of the Buddhist path which can be a bit marmite for people especially in the West.  It is right and understandable some people are concerned about following something they don’t fully understand and may seem a bit alien in our cultural context. We will look at the meaning and purpose of worship in Buddhism and how it can enhance our practice. We hope to see you for lively discussions!

From the 2nd May the new theme will be ‘thinking’, looking at the various themes around that such as reflection, views, rumination and proliferation, clear thinking, direct thinking,  relationship to meditation and mirror like wisdom in relation to Buddhist practice.

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.
