Our Resident Teacher guides meditations and explains aspects of Buddhist psychology and philosophy, emphasising their application in our everyday lives. This term will be based on the great Buddhist classic, Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life.

In this class we explore central aspects of Buddhist thought and practice in more depth, through guided meditations, thought provoking teachings and lively discussion. Over the following weeks we will be examining how our mind creates the word we experience, and how to prepare our mind for deeper insight and inner transformation. As this class has been running for a number of years, the general level is more advanced than the Monday and Thursday class, but the practical emphasis makes them accessible to everyone. Each class is self contained so you can follow a course or just drop in any week. Everyone is welcome.

"Through sincerely training in meditation on Modern Buddhism you will attain spiritual realisations, which lead you to permanent liberation from all the sufferings of this life and countless future lives. There is no greater meaning than this. Even temporarily, whenever you experience problems, unpleasant feelings, depression or unhappiness you can solve these problems immediately by transforming your mind into peace through your meditation practice. The benefits of meditation are immeasurable".
