At the Birmingham Buddhist Centre we host educational visits for young people of all ages. We provide engaging, interactive and thought-provoking workshops about Buddhism and mindfulness. Our sessions are delivered by experienced practising Buddhists who will illustrate the key principles and values of Buddhism, whilst showing what being a Buddhist can look like in the modern world.
What does it cost?
Visits typically last either one or two hours. A one-hour visit costs £70 and a two-hour visit costs £4 per student (with a minimum charge of £100). Longer visits will include a short break with squash and biscuits provided. At the moment we can only accommodate a maximum of 30 students at one time although we hope to increase our capacity in the future
How do I book?
Educational visits normally take place on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings although we can sometimes accommodate visits outside of these times. Please get in touch using the booking form so that we can find dates and times for your visit.
What will we learn?
We aim to provide varied and engaging experiences for students of different ages. In a 2-hour visit students can encounter more aspects of Buddhism using different spaces within the Centre.
Topics we often cover are:
∙ The Buddha’s life and the story of ‘The Four Sights’
∙ Exploring the main Shrine Room and artefacts + Q&A
∙ Introduction to Karma, Ethics and the five Buddhist Precepts
∙ Mindfulness and the practice of meditation
We are also happy to develop other activities with you that suit the needs and learning objectives of your group.
