The Journey and the Guide Buddhism Course
A Practical Course in Enlightenment
7.30pm - 10pm, for eight weeks.
The natural mode of consciousness is to expand. In every moment we can either allow consciousness to unfold or we can make
it 'me' and 'mine' and feel it shrink back to the level of egocentricity.
It's as if we’ve identified with a tiny ripple on the surface of the ocean. Once we let go of that identification there’s the whole ocean: centre-less, edgeless, completely free.
- from 'The Journey and the Guide'
How do we make the most of life? Buddhism is a non-theistic, practical path of human growth and fulfilment and seeks to address this very question.
This eight-week course leads participants step by step along the Buddhist path from mindfulness and emotional strength to receptivity, insight and spiritual rebirth.
It is about putting the spiritual life into practice here and now.
Participants will receive Maitreyabandhu’s book The Journey and the Guide as part of the course. Maitreyabandhu is a prize-winning poet who has been sharing his experience of practising Buddhism for over 20 years.
This book feels contemporary and relevant – full of situations and anecdotes that you'll instantly recognize from
your own life. But it also goes deep. Being both practical and profound, it really is what it says,
"a practical course in Enlightenment"
