    Session 9:

    31st May at 4pm BST with follow-up discussion 4th June at 7pm BST
    What is Enlightenment?

    With Jake Dartington and Stephen Batchelor

    In this session we’ll explore a range of ways of thinking about enlightenment and awakening. We’ll consider how we can move on from more simplistic views of enlightenment without undermining the aspirations that inspire our path.

    STEPHEN BATCHELOR is a Buddhist teacher and writer known for his secular or agnostic approach to the Dharma. Formerly a Buddhist monk in the Tibetan and Zen traditions, he is the translator and author of several books including Buddhism Without Beliefs, Living with the Devil and Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist. His most recent book, After Buddhism, was published by Yale University Press in 2015. He lives in southwest France with his wife Martine.

     

    JAKE DARTINGTON has practised Buddhist meditation since 1995. After training as a Dharma teacher with Christina Feldman, he started teaching in 2007. He has a background in Philosophy and Buddhist Studies and has trained as a teacher of MBSR/MBCT. Jake lives in Nottingham where he teaches mindfulness and Insight Meditation.
