 The Buddhist Path to Freedom

With Steve Palmer

New Thursday afternoons (except for first Thursday of the month, see 'Silver Sangha'), starting on 11th September.

The Buddhist Path to Freedom with Steve Palmer 2pm to 3:30pm.

The Buddha taught about freedom; a freedom from all forms of suffering and discontent. He did this by first describing the causes of suffering and then presenting a path leading beyond suffering and its causes. In this series of talks, discussions and meditations we shall look at what the Buddha had to say and how we may make use of his ‘timeless’ advice.

Everybody welcome.

 Two Days of Korean Zen Meditation and Teachings

With Jisu Sunim

Saturday and Sunday 11-12 October 2014


Jisu Sunim has been a monk in the Korean Chogye order of Son Buddhism (Zen) for almost forty years. He has spent periods of time in England over the past twenty years and developed an exceptional style of teaching and mastery of the English language.

As in previous retreats with Jisu Sunim, participants are asked to sit cross-legged on the floor or with the use of a meditation stool, the sitting posture being a particular feature in Zen. These two days are suitable for experienced meditators as well as newcomers willing to commit to the sitting periods each day.
