The Path of Joyful Awakening

Thursday 7th March-Thursday 25th April 2019

Every Thursday from 7.15 pm. to approx. 8.45 pm starting March 7th. for 8 weeks.

This is a course designed to help anyone who is interested in understanding the Buddha’s teaching and, step by step, to embark on the path of joyful liberation. It is a way to start at the beginning. But beginning doesn’t mean unimportant or ineffective.

Buddhism is not about belief but about authentic discovery of what makes things tick motivated by a wish to see all existence established in happiness free from difficulty.

Each class will be a mixture of study, discussion and meditation practice. Participants will be required to commit to every class and be prepared to do some study and practice in between. Nothing too arduous!

The course is offered by Keith Rowan. Keith has had a lifetime engaged with Buddhism and has had the good fortune to be directly guided by some wonderful instructors and mentors. His enthusiasm and confidence in the Buddha’s teaching can be infectious so beware J

This course is given for free. Donations for the running of the centre welcome.
