Description

Standard rate: £129

Supporter rate: £139

Theme: 

The Dhammapada is perhaps the most beloved of all Buddhist texts. In language that is poetic, rich and profound, it gathers together the core teachings of the Buddha. It is a collection of teachings that speak not only to meditative development but how to navigate a challenging world with deep embodied understanding and compassion. It is an inspirational text, revealing life as it is and the possibilities we have within us for responding skilfully to this life with all its joys and sorrows.
Each module in this programme will begin with Christina and Antonia reflecting upon a chapter within the text. The sessions will include an opportunity to reflect upon the teaching in small peer groups and time for questions.
