Radical Dharma: Buddhist Teachings for Uncertain Times

What makes you happy? Friends? Family? Work? Netflix? These things can bring enjoyment in our lives but sometimes things also go wrong. We argue with friends, we lose our job, we get ill.

The Buddha taught that authentic happiness is possible, Happiness that doesn’t depend upon the external conditions of our lives. A deep, unshakeable contentment that comes from within.

This course seeks to address this issue directly, by helping you evaluate what brings you true value and meaning. Through discussion, meditation, reflection and exercises in between sessions, this course will offer you Buddhist ideas and perspectives on life. Buddhist perspectives that can help you find authentic happiness in the midst of challenging and uncertain times.

Led by Maitrinara and team.

Mindful Emotion

The pressures of modern life in London can pile up, leaving us feeling anxious or isolated. Is it possible for us to become more positive and emotionally robust even though we might not be able to change the circumstances of our lives?

This eight-week course, created by Dr Paramabandhu Groves and Dr Jed Shamel, draws together approaches from clinical psychological and teachings from the Buddhist tradition to create an approach to mindfulness that emphasises cultivating kindness towards ourselves and others. Introducing more kindness into our lives has been shown to bring more emotional resilience, better relationships and more positive mental states.

The book Mindful Emotion will be included free, as a companion to the course offering guidance, reflections, and exercises in a concise user-friendly style. Teaching on the course will be accompanied by downloadable led meditations and suggestions for home practice.

Suitable for both newcomers or more experienced mediators.
