Who is Buddha and why do you need to know him?

Buddha is sometimes seen as an historical figure who had some interesting ideas about peace that have resonated through the ages. While this is all true, the essence of Buddha is much deeper and his relevance to each of us, far more profound.

If you’re curious to understand more about Buddha and Buddhism, join us for this introductory class. You’ll learn about the key Buddhist views and how to use meditation to live to your greatest potential. Applying these methods in your everyday life will lead to happiness and a sense of purpose and harmony in your relationships.

We provide chairs and cushions to sit on. No special clothing is required.

This is a beginner course open to everyone.
