Going Deeper: Encounters with Enlightenment


For anyone who has completed an introduction to Meditation and Buddhism course.

Tuesday Evenings: 2-30 June, 7.30pm – 9.00pm, with Dharmashalin

Every now and then we meet someone who changes the course of our lives. In his time the Buddha influenced dramatically the lives of many people he met, from beggars to kings, murderers to holy men.

We’ll be looking at the stories of what happened in those encounters, try to weave together a picture of some of what he taught and maybe catch a glimpse of what it is to be Enlightened.

Please register for the course at info@birminghambuddhistcentre.org.uk . Each week we’ll send out the story so you can think about it a head of time.

There’s no charge for this course, but donations are welcome here.



Online Day Retreat: Magic and Mystery


A glimpse into the vast universe of the Mahayana.

Saturday 6 June, 10.00am-1.00pm, with Dharmashalin

Some Buddhist teachings are simple and practical, others are wacky, contrary and vast. The Vimalakirti Nirdeśa is one of the latter. We’ll evoke something of that world and see what effect it has on us.

Please book for the day via info@birminghambuddhistcentre.org.uk . You’ll get a section of the text to look at before the day and the schedule to help you plan your time.

There’s no charge for this retreat, but donations are welcome here.
