Thursday Meditation Class

A Practical Guide to a Happy Life

This autumn our Thursday evening drop in meditation classes are based on the book Universal Compassion over a series of short courses.

The book itself gives a practical and uplifting explanation of how we can transform our day-to-day lives – including even the most demanding and difficult situations – into opportunities for personal and spiritual development.  

This course will explore and bring to life ancient meditative techniques that date back to Buddha, have been tried and tested for centuries and remain relevant to our everyday experiences.  In particular the extraordinary, transforming mind of compassion.

In this series of classes we will explore each section of the book, including the original poem that Universal Compassion is based on.  Called Training the mind in Seven points, it was composed 900 years ago by the Geshe Chekhawa in Tibet and contains many unique insights and meditations.

Our Thursday class is at a slightly deeper level than the Monday and Tuesday classes but still suitable for new people with an interest in Buddhism.   It is also perfect preparation for joining a deeper study program in the future.
