Going Deeper helps us to apply Buddhist teachings in our lives and to develop greater mindfulness, positive emotion and wisdom. With greater awareness and kindness we can transform ourselves and the way we relate to other people and the world, making our lives more honest, meaningful and enjoyable. Simple steps to transform ourselves and our world. With support from experienced meditators, we can explore our limitless potential. Also see our other events for regulars.

Learning to Love (more deeply)
Tuesdays from 10 April 7.30pm (six weeks)
‘Love isn’t something natural. Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. It isn’t a feeling, it is a practice.’ Erich Fromm
The Cultivation of LovingKindness (Metta Bhavana) has tremendous potential. It can improve the quality of our relationships, help us be more confident, improve sleep and act as a stepping stone to true wisdom. We’ll be looking at different approaches to the practice, doing exercises, talking about the philosophy behind it and much more.
Come spend six weeks exploring, luxuriating and delighting in the practice with Nagadevi and Dharmashalin.
Tuesdays from 22 May 7.30pm (six weeks)
