A New Way of Seeing the World - Discovering Buddhist Wisdom

Weekly ONLINE interactive course over 12 weeks
13 September-30 November 2021

Registration for this course has now closed.

LIVE & CATCH-UP DURING THE WEEK 
 
WHAT IS THIS COURSE ABOUT 
The wisdom of the Buddha reveals to us a whole new way of seeing the world and seeing ourselves within that world. The ideas put forward in the Buddhist teachings challenge our familiar ways of thinking and invite us to question our values and assumptions. 
 
This interactive course is an exploration of key Buddhist ideas. We will place these ideas under a microscope bringing the similarities and differences between Buddhist and contemporary views clearly into focus. We will be invited to re-evaluate our own ideas and clarify our outlook on life. The outcome is a surer and sounder insight into the way we see the world.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
The course is led by Buddhist teacher and author Dominique Side who brings over 40 years of experience as a Buddhist student, practitioner, and teacher in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
 
WHO CAN JOIN 
This serves as a stimulating stand-alone course open to everyone, from beginners to seasoned Buddhists.
For Rigpa students, this course is an optional ‘Foundations of the Path’ module for those who wish to pursue their study of the core area of ‘Buddha, Dharma and Sangha’.
