The Buddha’s teaching outlines the path virtues Sila, Sammadhi and Panna which translate as virtues of meditation, mindfulness and wisdom.

- What is the role of wisdom?
- Where do we find it?
- What does it look like?
- How do we use it?

Come to find out from Giles Barton, one of our long term teachers, in the search and cultivation of a wise mind for a good start to the new year!
