A full time, intensive, six month Dharma training course is being developed at Madhyamaloka in Birmingham. We aim to offer a thorough grounding in the basics of Triratna Buddhism. The course will include several retreats with Subhuti, as well as seminars with a number of the most experienced teachers in the Order. We will concentrate on Sangharakshita’s exposition of the Dharma, as well as looking at the Pali Canon, and other useful developments in Buddhist history.
The course will be for men, preferably young ones, though a serious interest in Dharma training is our main requirement. Participants will be accommodated in (comfortable) dormitory style accommodation at Madhyamaloka. Places will be limited. The course will start in early to mid January and run until around the end of June. It is not yet fully costed, but we will try to keep it as cheap as possible - less than £2000 per person, and hopefully not more than £1500. Windhorse:evolution have offered a generous package for those who need funding, whereby students would work at Windhorse for four months running up to Christmas, and would be housed in a community, in exchange for a substantial contribution to the funding of the course. If you are interested in this package please get in contact as soon as possible. There may also be opportunities to earn extra money within the course working with Sanghadeva.
