Buddhism

For regular weekly events including meditation, yoga and sangha events, see our Drop-in page

We investigate the three-fold path of ethics, meditation and wisdom. Each evening starts with an introduction to meditation, followed by a tea break, and then study and discussion led by experienced Buddhists.

The course will give a clear account of the foundations of the Buddha’s teachings. Participants enjoy the opportunity to discuss some of the big issues in life in the spirit of open enquiry and find out just how relevant the traditional Buddhist teachings are to contemporary life.

Each course concludes with a day retreat on the weekend after the last session.
