In this series of classes will be looking at the benefits of taking up a meditation practice and how to develop and maintain it.  As the series  progresses we will start to look at particular methods to solve the  problem of the unpleasant feelings that are produced due to the minds that we develop. Each class is self contained so you don’t have to attend the whole series to benefit.

This class is taught by Bob Banks. Bob has been studying, practising and teaching Modern Kadampa Buddhism for over 20 years. His kind gentle nature is a example of how by putting Buddha’s teachings into practice we can develop a mind that is peaceful all the time.

How to Transform your Life

“Through practising the instructions presented in this book we can transform our life from a state of misery into one of pure and everlasting happiness. These instructions are scientific methods to improve our human nature. Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make our human life meaningful. Every living being has the same basic wish…”

The way in which we present meditation and Buddhism is accessible to everyone. We offer practical advice as well as methods and techniques that can easily be integrated into daily life. We provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. When you arrive, a volunteer will register you before the class and direct you to the meditation space. Normally before class some announcements will be made.

Our experienced teachers are male or female, lay or ordained (Buddhist monk or nun). They will begin with an introduction, and guide a breathing meditation to help settle your mind. They will then give a teaching based on the topic of the class, with clear and logical explanations using examples and analogies.

An important characteristic of Modern Buddhism is to present Dharma teachings as personal advice that can be integrated into daily life. The intention of the teachings and guided meditations is to help you develop peaceful, clear and positive states of mind. This will help you develop your own inner wisdom, so that you can solve your daily problems and enjoy a more meaningful life.

Depending on the class, there will be either another guided meditation or a discussion with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify doubts.

All of our activities are run by volunteers, and we are a registered charity. The class and course fees help cover the costs of running the Centre.
