LEAP into Skills & Promises Auction

Q: Why is your mind like a parachute?

A: Because it only works when open.

Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation 6 wks starts Sat 7th March 10.30am-1.00pm. When our mind is tense or tight – irritated or fixated – then we suffer. We can’t see people and situations clearly, our mind exaggerates what we don’t like, or what we do like, and we are driven into unhelpful habits and behaviours.


The Buddha taught ways – such as meditation – to develop an open mind. Then we can see more clearly and act more kindly. Our mind can be like an open and bright blue sky, and we can be a force for good in the world. These courses will give you an introduction to what the Buddha taught about our true human potential. You will also be able to explore two Buddhist meditation practices.


No need to book – just turn up. £8/£5 concession per week. (Please pay less if you genuinely cannot afford the lower amount.)
