About the Workshop

These days, many people are developing an interest in Buddhism, partly because of its practical approach to solving the problems we experience in our modern lives, and also because it’s so easy to understand and relevant.

Practicing Buddhist teachings is the supreme method for improving the quality of our lives because the quality of life depends not upon external development or material progress, but upon the inner development of peace and happiness.
At this workshop learn the core insights and practices of Buddhism — from meditation and mindfulness to reincarnation, karma and the true nature of things — in a practical, accessible way.
