Our Saturday Half Day Courses are a perfect introduction to meditation and Buddhist philosophy as well as a great start to your weekend.  Each half day is split into 2 sessions with guided meditation and a talk in each.  The session times in the City Centre are 10.30-11.30am and 12-1pm with refreshments in the break.  If you cant make it to both sessions you are welcome to book for either. 

Booking is beneficial but not essential so do feel free to drop in on the day.

The cost in advance is £12 for the whole morning or £6 per session.  If you pay on the day it is £14 or £7 per session.  For those with Centre Card or on Foundation Programme there is no charge.

Saturday 30th March

with Sam Healey

in the City Centre, 125 Portland St (click for directions)

Buddha’s wisdom gives us the understanding and space to recognise we can let go of guilt and resentment. We can often feel stuck with our painful feelings and harbour negative thoughts towards ourselves and others. We can choose to change how we feel about others and ourselves by changing our view and in this way we will relax and experience a peace and calm we never felt was possible.
