Essentials of Buddhism Level 1 Wednesday 28th August 7pm

A Six Week Introductory Course 

We investigate the Buddha's teachings via the three-fold path of Ethics, Meditation and Wisdom. Each evening starts with an introduction to calming meditation practices, followed by a tea break. In the second half of the evening, there will be a talk, followed by group discussion led by an experienced Buddhist practitioner. Participants progress through the three paths of study with Level 1 and it is suitable for those completely new to Buddhism, or for those who are exploring how the Glasgow Buddhist centre and Triratna Buddhist Order present the Buddha's Dharma. The course will give a clear account of the foundations of the Buddha’s teachings. Participants enjoy the opportunity to discuss some of the big issues in life in the spirit of open enquiry and find out just how relevant the traditional Buddhist teachings are to our contemporary lives.

It runs from 7pm - 9.30pm 

Each course comprises six weeks (all Wednesday evenings) and concludes with a day retreat on the Sunday after the last session. For this course the day retreat is on Sunday 6th October from 10.30 - 4.30pm. (Please bring vegetarian food for our shared lunch on the day retreat.)
