Basic Buddhism 1 (six-week course)

Thursday, June 16th @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Last date you can join this course!

Have you ever wondered what Buddhism is really about? Then why not come along to our Basic Buddhism Course and learn about the Buddha, his teachings, meditation and how Buddhism is relevant to Western society today.

This six-week course not only teaches you the basics of Buddhism and meditation but aims to give you sufficient lived experience of Buddhist life to know whether you would like to explore it further in Basic Buddhism 2 which starts a few weeks after this course concludes.

Join Kusaladana and the team at the centre or on Zoom.
