West London Buddhist Centre


Buddhism Courses

If you want a fuller, deeper experience of how contemporary Buddhist practice might support you to live a happier life that’s more in line with what really matters to you, try one of our courses:
• Introduction to Buddhism courses provide a broad overview of Buddhist principles and practices.
Basic Buddhism courses go into key teachings in more depth, and are open to everyone but intended for people who have learnt to meditate.

Any of our courses are an excellent foundation for attendance at our regular Sangha Night or Buddhism in the City classes, and people who complete a course are often interested in taking their exploration of Buddhism further by going on retreat.

We also run drop-in classes where you can learn about Buddhism without committing to a course.

This course is one of our 'Basic Buddhism' courses, which go into key Buddhist teachings in some depth. They are open to everyone but intended for people who have learnt to meditate.
