Buddhism: A philosophy for life

Buddhism is becoming increasingly well-known in the West today. This introductory workshop covers the key Buddhist concepts and their relevance and application to everyday life. During the day we will explore the origins of Buddhism, its ethical foundation and Enlightenment – the goal of the Buddhist Path. The day will also include an opportunity to experience a variety of straight-forward meditative exercises sitting on chairs. No special postures are required.

Sue Glanville has experience of teaching, leadership, coaching and spiritual direction.  She has taught Buddhism and meditation for many years and led groups to India and Nepal to visit key Buddhist sites.

 ‘Regardless of our beliefs, Buddhism has a great deal to teach us today, to challenge how we see ourselves and the world around us.’

‘'Sue's teaching style is clear and friendly, she has fantastic student teacher relationships with many of her pupils and tends to make an extremely positive impact on their learning and understanding. Her teaching style is very broad due to her ability to adapt to the way people learn, she also shows great confidence in other people’s ability which gives them more confidence in themselves and their own capabilities. Because of this she is always able to get the best out of people. She is an interesting and insightful person who is full of fun and has not only been beneficial to the way I learn, but has also had a great influence on my perceptions about the world and the people in it.’
