Not About Being Good Buddhism Course
7.30pm - 10pm, for six weeks
Buddhist ethics are not about conforming to a set of conventions, nor are they about 'being good' in order to gain rewards.
Instead, living ethically springs from the awareness that other people are no different from yourself, and we can actively develop this awareness through cultivating love, clarity and contentment.
In this six-week Buddhism course we'll be exploring all this and how to live ethically in this world.
We'll also be drawing on Subhadramati's book Not about Being Good, a copy of which will be included with the course.
Suitable for: Anyone who is interested in learning more about Buddhism and Buddhist ethics.
Cost: €125 waged / €105 low-waged / €75 unwaged or student.
