New Course for 2021 – commencing Sunday 7 March 4pm to 5.30 pm
Path to Enlightenment will be taught in three parts in 2021. Ven Anna Goldstein will offer an introduction and overview for the first six weeks in March and April.
The Path to Enlightenment series presents the Buddha’s teachings as an accessible and vital living tradition of mental and spiritual development.
The course starts this year at the beginning of the main text Path to Enlightenment in Tibetan Buddhism, by the great scholar and meditator, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden.
You will explore the stages of spiritual practice from the beginning to more advanced meditation and practical teachings on achieving enlightenment – the greatest expression of human potential.
