faith, logic & doubt:

a buddhist perspective

Meditation Course in English

Sunday 15th September

13:00 – 16:30

about the course

Learn how these seemingly contradictory minds work together to produce a stable conviction in the path to happiness through our own wisdom and experience.

Within Buddhism, faith is positive mental attitude that is not so much something “you either have or don’t”, but that is to be cultivated as an essential tool for mental growth through logical and personal experience of the teachings.

Likewise although doubt is often seen to be a negative in the realms of the spiritual, Buddha taught it as an essential pre-requisite to discovering the truth and how we can use it to challenge our habitual ways of thinking and move towards lasting mental freedom.

This course will explore faith, logical reasons and the process of doubting through meditation, teachings and question and answer. A fascinating and meaningful opportunity for those interested in spiritual practice as well as for those of us who are not sure!
