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.

Suitable for those who have completed our Introduction to meditation and Buddhism course.

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