Our Precious Human Life

Saturday 11th July, 10.30am – 1.30pm

When we understand how precious our human life is and how much we can accomplish in a single lifetime, we can encourage ourselves to take the real meaning of our life and not waste it in activities that have little meaning. In this course we will learn to understand why our life is so precious and how we can use it for its most beneficial purpose.

We suggest a donation of £8 (includes refreshments)  or £10 for the Purification course (includes refreshments and light vegetarian lunch) but no-one is turned away due to lack of funds.
