Buddhism teaches that we have all existed in other forms in the past and will exist in other forms in the future until we break the cycle of aging, sickness, death, and rebirth by attaining enlightenment.
Understanding this cyclical existence has many benefits; it helps explain why things happen to us in this life, helps us understand that all beings are connected, and can teach us how to cherish others without the favouritism of attachment.
This 3-part course will offer practical methods that lead to a happy, peaceful mind and ultimately to full enlightenment. Open to everyone, regardless of previous experience.
