Not about being good

A practical course on how to live and what to do!

Man Angel

No-one wants to feel like they're being told what to do - we like to think we know what's best for ourselves and others. The trouble is our life doesn't always bear that out.

A key Buddhist insight is that consciousness isn't fixed; we're creating it all the time by our actions of body, speech and mind. This means we can shape our future.

On this six-week course we'll explore, in a progressive and experiential way, how to act in ways that allow our lives to flourish whilst positively contributing to the lives of those around us.

Participants will receive a copy of Subhadramati’s book 'Not About Being Good' as part of the course.
