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 two 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 can’t 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.

Finding Peace at Home & Work

Saturday 27th July 

with Jeff Simms 

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

It can be difficult to maintain a calm and peaceful mind when we are faced with challenging and difficult circumstances. Often our frustration and anger arises easily and before we know it, we are lost in a sea of conflicting emotions and judgments. In Buddha’s teachings we can begin to recognise our unpleasant feelings before they are out of control and therefore easier to let go of. These teachings and meditations are very practical for our daily lives and yet their benefits are endless. Open to everyone.
