Introduction to Buddhism

Ever wondered what  Buddhism is all about?

Maybe you already know a little and wish to learn more. Like it, but not sure? A little curious about what its about.

You are welcome to come along to this course and discover it for yourself.

The course is based on a wonderful series of half hour DVD’s focused on a different subject each night, with an introduction by either Richard Gere or Keanu Reeves. Various brilliant teachers then explain Buddhist concepts clearly. From this we base our discussions and here you have a great opportunity to ask questions and expand your knowledge with a local Buddhist practitioner.

The 8 week course is aimed at giving an overview of the Mahayana Buddhist path so that participants gain a deeper understanding of what Buddhism is about and the tools to more effectively decide if it is the spiritual path they would like to pursue further or not.

Classes run throughout the year dependent on interest, and are held during the evening. Starting at 5:30pm
They are held at the Himalayan Trading Post, 89 Cameron Street, Whangarei.
