Four Saturdays of Exploration

Mindsprings has always offered meditation and therapy in a non-aligned way. That is to say, I've never set myself up as a specifically Buddhist teacher even though my training and my background is in Buddhism. Typically, Mindsprings courses avoid too much religious jargon and draw on a lot of current neuroscientific or therapeutic thinking. 

But over the years, some students have requested teaching days where we go in detail into the dharma and so I'm offering four Saturdays in the first half of 2021 to do just that. 

27th Feb 2021 (10am -4pm) Four Noble Truths
27th March 2021 (10am -4pm) The Formation of Self
24th April 2021 (10am -4pm) Karma
29th May 2021 (10am -4pm) Bodhicitta

You don't need to have any experience of these teachings and the Dharma Days are constructed as open forums for exploring these fascinating topics. Please just book a place and turn up! 

The sessions will run from 10am until 4pm with tea breaks and lunch. There will be some meditation, break-out groups and plenary discussions of the day's topic. 

There are limited places for these days

Please book your cushion!

I offer these days for free!

Buddhist teaching is always offered freely but students may wish to donate to support the Mindsprings community.
