So you think you know about Buddhism?
Think again!

"Buddhism is just about learning how to meditate to calm the mind and be more peaceful - right? "
No!... though this is likely to happen if you learn to meditate with us, and you are welcome to come along to the centre and just learn meditation, but Buddhism is about having the courage to fully challenge and change yourself. Come along and learn how to transform your life and our world.
