Our next step courses are aimed towards those who already have an understanding of buddhist concepts and philosophy and are ready to explore them in more depth. If you are new to buddhism and the terminology and ideas it uses you may find these courses are a little difficult to follow.
You may notice some of these are also classed as introductory courses. This is because some content is suitable for people who are new to Buddhism, but they also contain information that is a little more advanced and therefore also suitable to people looking to go a bit deeper with their understanding.
Please be aware retreats might be cancelled up to two weeks prior to the event due to lack of numbers or other reasons so please keep this in mind when booking transport.
