Path to Enlightenment – 9 week series with Martin Horan from Sunday 21 May*
If we want to transform our lives, developing our potential for love and compassion is the swiftest method. If we also want to make a real difference to others, bringing our love and compassion into all our daily activities is essential.
The teachings on the six paramitas, or perfections, explain how we do this – progressively expanding the scope of our ordinary generosity, non-harmfulness, patience, joy in effort, concentration and wisdom.
This special chapter of the Path to Enlightenment series, over 9 weeks, will explain both the theory and practice of the six perfections. It includes guided meditation and an opportunity for questions.
It’s suitable both for people who have previously attended Path to Enlightenment classes, and those who might not have done so, but who are interested in this inspiring and practical subject. While attendees will gain most benefit if they are able to attend all classes in this unit, each class can also be attended on a stand alone basis.

You can join the classes in the magnificent traditional Tibetan temple. All welcome.
The temple is a wonderful and serene space, featuring a 12-foot statue of Shakyamuni Buddha and unique Tibetan artworks called thangkas. Cushions for those who like to meditate cross-legged, and chairs to suit others’ comfort. Delicious morning and afternoon tea and an opportunity to chat after each session.
