‘Sailing the Worldly Winds’ Buddhism Course

Saturday 23rd April 2022
10:30am - 12:45pm

Led by Maitrikaya

An In-Person Event

A Five-Week Course both In-Person and Online

The Buddha’s teaching of The Eight Worldly Winds describes how we are buffeted about while trying to make our way in the world.

Tossed about by these winds – gain and loss, praise and blame, pleasure and pain, fame and disrepute – it is easy to feel ground underfoot, lose all direction, confidence, and sense of purpose.

The Buddha had clear guidance on how to rise above these ‘worldly winds’ – facing them uncompromisingly, and entering through the ‘doorways to freedom’ that allow us to become equanimous in the face of them.

And when we do this and are no longer at the mercy of the worldly winds, we are more able to live in tune with life’s deepest meaning.

This five-week Buddhism course is led by Maitrikaya, a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order, and will explore how we can find freedom, energy and equanimity amidst the storms of life.

To do the course, you will need to have a copy of the book, which you can purchase in eBook format and in printed format (received in the post) from Windhorse Publications.

A Hybrid Course

This course is offered as an in-person course as well as an online course.

While all of our events are offered on a donation basis, to attend our courses in-person we ask for a deposit of €30 to secure a place as space is limited.

All our events are offered for free but you might consider making a donation to help us to continue to provide classes.

Suitable for: Anyone interested in using the Buddha’s teaching as a path to freedom.
