The Journey and the Guide

A Practical Course in Enlightenment

17 August - 9 September

Mondays and Wednesdays | 7-8.30pm

The natural mode of consciousness is to expand. In every moment we either allow it to unfold or we feel it shrink back into selfishness. It's as if our habit is to identify with a tiny ripple on the surface of the ocean. Once we let go of that identification what remains is the whole ocean: centreless, edgeless, completely free.

Learn what it means to set out on the journey to Enlightenment and the practical steps you can take to make the most of your life - day after day, week after week.

Based on Maitreyabandhu's book (you'll get a digital copy), with two classes each week on Zoom, meditation, interactive teaching, group discussions and pre-recorded guided meditations sent to you during the week.

Because of limited places, the course has a minimum contribution of £25. However, we ask that you consider adding a donation and giving a total of £80.
