About

Join us Saturday 16th May at 2pm via Zoom

Are you bombarded with so much information and knowledge that it can be difficult to decide what is true, what to think or even what to do? Our first meet-up will explore this real challenge and discuss whether it is possible or even desirable for us to access wisdom in today's world.

Do you ever get tired of the constant chatter in your mind, replaying conversation, working out what to say the next time you meet someone or replaying past experiences. During our second meet-up we will explore whether it is really possible to live somewhere other than in this incessantly busy mind, if so, what might this be like? We will also discuss whether the present moment provides any possibilities for real happiness for us.

Every day we hear stories of injustice from poverty to war to the environment, it can be completely overwhelming. During our third meet-up we will explore some very relevant and important question. Why is there so much injustice in the world today? Is it possible for us to lead a just life? What is a just life?

Classes start week beginning Saturday 16th May 2pm. They are held via Zoom video and are 60 mins long. You will be sent a Zoom link to join the class at that regular time each week over 3 weeks.
