A Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment

26 September @ 19:30 - 12 December @ 21:00

“The time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics that is beyond religion.”— The Dalai Lama. Beyond Religion, 2011

A 12-week online course with face to face discussion hosted at The Good Heart over the autumn of 2022.

Monday evenings 7.30pm – 9pm, 26th September – 12th December 2022

Suggested donation: £5 per evening. It’s best to commit to the whole series, but drop ins are also welcome.

This course is designed for anyone who is interested in Buddhism (beginner or more advanced) and would like to bring Buddhist philosophy into their daily lives. It has been developed by an organisation in California called A Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment to allow people to benefit from Buddhist mind training techniques without requiring belief in aspects of reality unverifiable by modern science like past and future lives, karma, and other realms. The Frome version will include face to face discussion facilitated by Alison Murdoch and is being offered in partnership with Jamyang Buddhist Centre, London.

What can I expect?

Each class is divided into a lecture, guided meditation, and group discussion, designed to bring out our best qualities, help us manage life’s difficulties, and enhance our ability to be of benefit to the world. Its topics range from the preciseness of life and accepting impermanence to expanding compassion and understanding the interdependent nature of reality.
