Introduction to Buddhism

Finding a Happy Meaningful Life

In these classes we will learn about Buddhist view, meditation and action and how by improving our mind we can find the happy meaningful life everyone is looking for.

These classes will include topics such as:
• What does our death mean?
• The Buddhist Way of life
• Liberation from Sorrow
• Developing non-attachment
• Training in moral discipline, concentration and wisdom
• The real meaning of human life
• Living with a good heart

Each class will consist of a talk, guided meditations and light refreshments.

The classes are organized as short courses, usually 3, 4 or 5 weeks long. You can attend the whole course or simply drop in whenever you can as each class is self-contained, or you can just come along to try a session.
