Genuine fulfillment comes when we change our focus from what we can get out of life and instead focus on what we can bring to it. The Buddhas teachings flow around this central theme gently guiding us to take responsibility for our own happiness by focusing on how we relate to others in our world.
The Crafting a Life of Fulfillment series explores the core topics of Buddhism in an accessible and logical sequence, giving you tools to invite a deeper level of satisfaction and meaning into your life. This foundational course will introduce students to ideas and practical strategies that everyone can relate to and use.
Throughout the year we’ll explore these themes:
Meet your Mind
Meditation and Medication
Following a Path
Connecting with a Mentor
Death, Rebirth and Reincarnation
Emerging from Dissatisfaction: Samsara and Nirvana
Bodhichitta: Opening the Heart
Emptiness: Dissolving the Ego
Join us for the whole course or come along to any of the stand-alone topics. You’ll hear new ideas, connect with like-minded people and have plenty of time to ask questions relating the themes to your everyday life. This course is suitable for everyone who’d like to experience a more meaningful and happy life.
Courses are held monthly on Saturdays between 9:00am and 3:00pm.
