      Introduction to Buddhism

      Looking for a clear overview of essential teachings and practices at the heart of Buddhism? Join us for this course on key aspects of the Buddhist tradition, and how they’re relevant to us right here and now in the modern West – and how you can apply them in your day-to-day life if you choose. Classes will include a mixture of discussion, presentation and optional “take-home” reflections, along with an experiential taste of Buddhist meditation. The course will give you experience and understanding to underpin participation in our drop-in classes, and is also an ideal foundation for our 'Basic Buddhism' courses, which go into more depth on specific aspects of Buddhism, and our 'Going Deeper' retreats. No experience or knowledge of meditation or Buddhism needed. The course runs over six weekly meetings:Week 1: The Buddha and his significance todayWeek 2: Buddhist ethics - in principle and in practiceWeek 3: Meditation and the mindWeek 4: Wisdom - a Buddhist framework for living life and understanding realityWeek 5: Buddhist ritual, symbols and mantrasWeek 6: Community - its nature and significance in Eastern and Western Buddhism
