Every Sunday, 10-11:30am Beginning  January 15

Over 2500 years ago, a young man sat beneath a tree and woke up. He then walked the wilds and villages of India, talking to anyone who would listen and passing on his vision, so that others too could wake up. His vision was passed on through the centuries and through many cultures down to us in 2023. 

What did he have to say? What was so compelling to last this long, to influence millions of people, to change lives and cultures? What was he like? What could a Buddhist approach to personal transformation and fulfillment look like for us?

This winter we’ll be exploring the life of the Buddha, his core teachings, and  a selection of stories from the days of the Buddha. We will discover their relevance, practicality and wonder for ourselves. What does it mean to wake up, here in the winter of 2023 on the seacoast of New England?

Every Sunday, 10-11:30am. These mornings will include meditation, a short talk and discussion. Everyone is welcome! We will be meeting in-person at Gateway Taiji, 875 Islington St, Portsmouth, with a Zoom option. Offered by donation, $5-$15 suggested.
