At York Buddhist Centre, 17 Walmgate York Y01 9TX
We all want to be happy and content in our lives but, somehow, true and constant happiness seems to elude us. The Buddha discovered the reasons for this and dedicated his life to teaching others practical ways to deal with disappointment, anxiety, anger, fear and upset. His teachings worked and spread rapidly throughout the Eastern world. Now they are available in an accessible form in York at the York Buddhist Centre.
This Newcomers' Course is a practical, friendly and easy-going Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation and is open to all those over 18. The course is by donation but there is a £12 registration fee which includes a free course guide.
