Think, Act, Live

A course on the basis of Buddhist practice

In person. Held at the Norwich Buddhist Centre.

Our first taste of Buddhist practice is often meditation. However, the Buddha taught that if we want to get anywhere in meditation practice we first need to look at how we lead our lives. This is because living a life of positive ethical actions leads to a lightness of mind that is the fertile ground needed for deeper meditation experience.

In this six week course, we’ll be looking at lots of practical ways for us to explore the positive mental effects of living ethically. We’ll be examining how Buddhist ethics is not about following rules or conventions, but about responding in creative and surprising ways to the situations that we find ourselves in, as well as speaking clearly, directly, and bravely in our interactions with others. The course will reveal how the sometimes overlooked practice of Buddhist ethics is actually the key to a rich, alive meditation practice, deeper insight and wisdom, and living a truly fulfilled existence.

The course will be based on  Subhadramati’s book “Not about being good” which you can buy as a paperback or e-book from windhorsepublications.com. We have two copies in stock at the Buddhist Centre. Please contact us to reserve your copy.

This course is suitable for those new to Buddhism or meditation, as well as experienced practitioners who have completed courses with us before. The course will include body awareness and reflection but won’t teach you how to meditate. If you’d like to learn how to meditate, or go deeper in meditation, join the Meditation Challenge.
