We offer an extensive programme of Buddhist teachings, meditation, retreats and conferences. Our aim is to provide the opportunity for people to transform their minds and hearts into their highest potential for the benefit of others.
This special three-part series will investigate the relationship between Buddhism and science. The main focus will be on psychology and how modern research findings support and conflict with the ancient Buddhist tradition. We will examine important Buddhist and scientific ideas about achieving well-being such as mindfulness and compassion and how we can combine ancient and modern approaches to reach our full potential.
