The evening takes place in two halves. In the first half, an aspect of Buddhism is introduced with an opportunity for discussion. Traditional teachings of the Buddha are presented in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world. After a short break, we’ll explore one of two Buddhist meditations.
Talks: We have a set series of topics that we cycle through, covering Buddhist ethics, meditation and wisdom. Every night will stand alone so there is no need for any previous knowledge for any evening and you can start coming at any point in the cycle.
Meditation: We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Development of Loving Kindness, which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world.
We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.
The WBC gives people the tools to work with their minds. Now more than ever, we all need resilience, awareness and positivity.
Our Centre runs on generosity. Teachers give their time freely and many volunteers help keep the Centre running.
Support the WBC with your generosity by giving what you can.
