A talk to explore Buddhism, as practised in Tibet and the Himalayan regions of India, Bhutan and Nepal.

From the fundamental principles of Buddhism, we will explore the evolution of Mahayana and Vajrayana practise, the tantric ritual of advanced practitioners, and the complex art and iconography of the traditions.

Following questions and answers, there will be a short break for tea and coffee, and an opportunity to purchase Colin’s book ‘Wisdom of the Mountains.’ An hour of yoga and meditation, open to all, will conclude the morning (please bring a mat or something to lie on).

Upon payment, you will be sent an email ticket: please be sure to bring with you on the day.

Tickets: £10
