Think, Act, Live – A Buddhist course on the basis of meditation

15th September @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm BST

Think, Act, Live – A Buddhist Course on the Basis of Meditation

In-person, held at Effra Space. Brixton

Our first taste of Buddhist practice is often meditation. However, the Buddha taught that if we want to get anywhere in meditation practice we first need to look at the skillfulness of our actions. This is because living a life of positive ethical actions leads to a lightness of mind that is the fertile ground needed for deeper meditation experience.

In this six week course, we will be looking at lots of practical ways for us to explore the positive mental effects of living ethically. We’ll be talking about how Buddhist ethics is not about following rules or conventions, but about responding in creative and surprising ways to the situations that we find ourselves in, as well as speaking clearly, directly, and bravely in our interactions with others. This course will show you how this sometimes overlooked practice of Buddhist ethics is actually the key to a rich, alive meditation practice, deeper insight and wisdom, and living a truly fulfilled existence.

This course is suitable for those newer to Buddhism or meditation, as well as experienced practitioners who have completed courses with us before.
