Not About Being Good Course

A Six-Week Online Buddhist Ethics Course

Starts Wednesday 24th February 2021
7pm – 9pm each week
Led by Vajrashura

Not About Being Good Buddhism Course

How do we live well in a troubled world? How do we decide how to act and behave?

This is the realm of Buddhist ethics, which 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, based upon Subhadramati’s book Not About Being Good.

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.

Suitable for: Anyone who is interested in learning more about Buddhism and Buddhist ethics.

This course will run on Zoom for five weeks on a donation basis.

Doing Something that Works – Introduction to Meditation Course

A Five Week Online Course

Starts Thursday 11th March 2021
10.30am – 12.30pm each week
Led by Osadha & Prajnamayi

Meditation

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It helps us change the way we relate to ourselves and the world around us.

On this course we teach two meditation techniques, which consist of simple but effective practices drawn from the Buddhist tradition and originally taught by the Buddha himself.

They complement each other and can be learned by anyone, and you don’t have to be a Buddhist to benefit from them!

For more on meditation, mindfulness and loving-kindness, see our meditation page.

Suitable for: Anyone with an interest in Mindfulness or Buddhism.

This course will run on Zoom for five weeks on a donation basis.
