Down to Earth Buddhism
with Hobart Buddhist Meditation Centre
An introduction to Mahayana Buddhism theory and practice.
This program will introduce participants to the fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism. We will explore the steps Shakyamuni Buddha – an ordinary person, who himself experienced confusion, anxiety, fear, pain and uncertainty – took to attain enlightenment 2,500 years ago.
Sessions include setting a positive intention, simple guided meditation practice, and a presentation and discussion about an aspect of the Buddha’s teachings and how to apply this information to everyday life.
You can attend sessions in person or by Zoom.
If you wish to attend in person, please be reassured that our venue is wheelchair accessible.
Sessions are free, however participants are encouraged to make a donation toward Hobart Buddhist Meditation Centre’s ongoing running costs. Information on how to make a donation can be found here.
