 The Buddhist Path to Freedom

With Steve Palmer

New Thursday afternoons (except for first Thursday of the month, see 'Silver Sangha').

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.

Date: Thursday 27 November 2014
