Buddhism Classes

Young People at NLBC (Sub35)

Are you between 18 and 35 years old and interested in Buddhism?

Are you tired of the stories that dominate our personal and public lives? Do you have a sense that there must be something else, but don’t yet know what it is?

With discussion, exploration and meditation, plus coffee and croissants, we will connect with what is meaningful and ask what Buddhism can offer us to transform ourselves and the world.

Every third Saturday of the month
10.30-13.00
On 21 April, 19 May, 16 June, 21 July and 18 August
With: Sub35 team

Men’s class - once a month on Saturday

A chance to explore the Buddhist Vision through meditation, talks, discussion and hanging out together. Class starts at 14.00; but do join us for lunch from 13.00.

Class on 19 May: Pleasure and Meaning
Often the things we enjoy the most- sex, chocolate, alcohol are not the things that give our lives meaning- while the 'spiritual ' things we can find boring- how can we unite pleasure and meaning- and what did the Buddha do about it?

An afternoon of discussion, talks and mediation.

Once a month on Saturday 14.00-17.00.

Class on 19 May, 16 June, 21 July and 18 Aug 2018

Join us for lunch from 13.00. Please bring vegetarian lunch to share
