The basic message of Buddhism is simple:
- we can’t depend on anything to be permanent
- our actions have consequences
- we can change for the better
- Buddhism speaks to all kinds of people regardless of their gender, gender identity, race, sexuality or nationality.
We present a range of courses, classes, seminars and retreats for beginners and experienced practitioners alike, offering the opportunity to expand your understanding of Buddhism, its principles and practices.
