All of our classes are suitable for people who are new to Buddhism, and also those who wish to deepen their experience within a lively and supportive community. It is more productive if you can attend the complete course each time, but it is also fine to drop in when your circumstances allow. From September 2017 we will be offering classes in the Foundation of Buddhist Thought on a fortnightly basis, alternating with a class in Buddhist Meditation – Making Time for Meditation.
Unless otherwise stated, classes take place at New Oriel Hall, Larkhall, Bath, BA1 6RA
