This weekend on Mindfulness and Buddhism is aimed at anybody who has done the eight-session course or is interested in how the teachings of Buddhism can help in our everyday lives. It is led by Suryacitta who was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1999.

Suryacitta taught Buddhism on the MSc at Coventry University and here he will share some of those teachings in a non-academic approach.
Over the weekend you will explore how Buddhism and its ancient wisdom can help us in today’s busy consumerist world.
PLEASE NOTE: This weekend does not presuppose you are a Buddhist. It is open to those of no faith or any faith. The aim of the course is to show the timeless wisdom of this ancient tradition and how it can help each of us in today’s busy world.

Themes covered include:

  • The Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path
  • The Five Shandhas  – exploring the elements which make up the universe, including you. (This was the most popular lecture on the MSc)
  • Karma – You don’t need to believe in Karma for it to be true, just like you don’t need to believe in gravity.
  • The Life of the Buddha – who he was and what he discovered
  • We will explore the much-misunderstood nature of the self
  • Guidelines for living

There will be time for meditation and to ask questions and explore other aspects of Buddhism. The weekend will also explore how mindfulness originated from Buddhism.

There will also be time to relax and walk in beautiful Bradgate Deer Park just two minutes walk away.
