Newcomers’ Courses


The Newcomers’ Course begins on Wednesday 2nd October

Finding Peace in a Turbulent World

An Introduction to Meditation and Buddhism

Wednesday 2nd October for six weeks – from 7.00 to 9.15 pm

At the Quaker Centre, Friargate

In this course, we’ll be looking at practical ways to cultivate true peace and contentment, so that we can be happier, kinder and more joyful in a world that is often challenging and difficult to navigate.

We’ll also be learning two meditation practices – one to help us to calm our minds and the second to help us cultivate more kindness for ourselves and others.

And through workshops, talks and discussions we’ll see how the Buddha’s insights can give us a clearer understanding of our lives and how, by developing natural ethics, we can engage with the world more positively.

Open to all those over 18. The course is freely given but (if you are able) we would appreciate a donation each week of between £5 – £10 to help cover room hire and other costs.

Join us and other like-minded people – no need to book, just turn up!
