Life With Full Attention – A Practical Course in Mindfulness
If we want to experience life more deeply and richly, we need to look at how we experience life. We so often overlook the one thing that defines whether our experience is a happy or unhappy one – our minds. Our state of mind filters everything, and if we want to feel like our life is going anywhere we need to attend to our minds. In this eight-week practical course in mindfulness, we will be looking at how to do this week on week, starting with applying mindfulness in everyday life and culminating in mindfulness of the nature of reality. The book Life with Full Attention by Maitreyabandhu will be our guide to daily practice. A copy of the book will be given to you at the start of the course.
This course will run on eight consecutive Monday evenings 7.15-9.45pm, starting Monday 13th Jan. Suitable for newcomers or regular meditators. Led by Viryanaga and team

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.
