Introduction to Buddhism

Day Course

Although Buddhism is already around 2500 years old, Buddha’s instructions are timeless and universally applicable – even in our busy modern day life. Buddha taught a practical path of wisdom and compassion that has a liberating effect and brings lasting peace and happiness. In this day course you will learn basic Buddhist thoughts and how they can benefit us in everyday life.

What to expect

Lectures on the subject followed by guided meditations. These teachings will give a practical introduction to Buddhism and its philosophy. The meditations offer the opportunity to deepen the newly gained insights. In preparation for the teachings and meditations short Buddhist prayers are played.

During the breaks, tea, cakes and a vegetarian / vegan meal are offered during the lunch break. In addition, there will be a presentation of the meditation room, where the various Buddha statues and symbolism will be explained.
