We’re Nottingham Buddhist Centre’s young Buddhist group. We get together monthly to meditate and practice the dharma together. That means meditation, tea, and talking about life’s biggest questions from a Buddhist perspective, and sometimes vegan cake. We try to approach things like ethics and meditation in ways that are practical but rooted in deep principles.
This month - January - we’re going to start looking at how we can apply Buddhism to some of the issues we face in the modern world. There are all sorts of new challenges thrown up by technology and the particular culture we live in, from stress and sleep loss to political polarisation. Though Buddhism arose in ancient India it still speaks to these problems. We’ll be looking at some of these topics in more detail later in the year as well. See you soon!
