Retreats


We have a rich program of events beyond our usual drop-in classes, including regular courses, retreats, festival days and other events.

Courses

The Mind's Release Course

Tues 1st May - The Mind's Release: Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation

6 week course offers an overview of basic Buddhist concepts and principles and an exploration of two core meditation practices that bring about self-awareness, change and spiritual insight.

Each week we will examine the core principles of Buddhism and meditation and explore why these ancient practices are relevant to our lives today, helping us lead a fuller, richer, happier life. These topics will be explored through meditation, discussion and reflection with short exercises to do between sessions.

This course is suitable for newcomers to Buddhism and meditation, as well as those who want to take their practices deeper as classes will develop around people's own questions and experience.

Eight Tuesdays starting from 1st May, 7.15 to 9.45pm.

Downstairs at the Brixton Pound Cafe, 77 Atlantic Road, SW9 8PU

Led by Amarapuspa, Sagarasila and team

Booking essential.
