We meet every Wednesday Evening throughout the year from 7.00 pm to 9.15pm at the Priory Street Centre, 15 Priory Street, York, YO1 6ET (get directions here)
All classes include guided meditation and are suitable for everyone – newcomers, non these four on-Buddhists and regular practitioners as well.
There is no charge but we ask for a donation if you are able to give one. This is a drop-in class so you can attend when you wish.
27th June to 25th July – An Introduction to Myth – Developing Positive Qualities – On these four Wednesdays we’ll be exploring the qualities of the historical Buddha; qualities which are embodied in a set of mythical figures and which, through our imagination, can help us on the path to greater contentment and peace. All are welcome.
1st to 29th August – An Introduction to Buddhism – On these five Wednesday evenings we’ll be teaching meditation from scratch again and exploring very practical ways on how we can achieve more peace and contentment in our lives. The course will look at The Worldly Winds – those ups and downs which blow us off course in our lives and cause us to suffer. We’ll be looking at effective and practical ways to deal with loss, disapproval, blame and pain and exploring how to deal with the ending of those things which have given us pleasure and happiness.
This course is aimed at people who are only just beginning to explore Buddhism but it is open to everyone – beginners and those with an established practice. No need to book, just turn up!
There is no charge but we would appreciate a voluntary donation of £5 – £10 per session from those who are able to help in this way.
