This once a month Zoom Course continues over a nine-month period. The first session includes a general overview of the Noble Eightfold Path and the Goal. I will refer to each of the links in the Introduction with details about the links.
Every session will include a guided meditation, instructions for daily life, a talk on the theme and opportunity for questions and sharing.
The Buddha invited us to address every major area of our life. He did not make mindfulness or meditation the heart of the teaching but as two notable features of the Path.
The Buddhist tradition and the recent tradition of Western Mindfulness/Meditation has highlighted the two final links, sometimes at the expense of a full path of exploration and transformation.
The Buddha gave a precise definition for each of the links.
Do join our Course. I will encourage all participants to give priority to the theme of the month, keep a diary of experiences around the theme.
The teachings are practices are suitable for everyone – people with any religious, spiritual or secular priority.
Every participant in the Course will receive a PDF titled Buddha Study Guide. You will find supportive words of the Buddha and reflections in the Guide.
I look forward to seeing you.

Spiritual India took a widely accepted view that through sitting meditation the yogi burnout their old karma and did not create any new karma until they reached liberation.
The Buddha asked a yogi three poignant questions:
The yogi could not answer.
The Buddha taught the Noble Eightfold Path towards a fulfilled and liberated way of life.
The Path leaves no stone unturned. The eight links are:
