Faculty teachers Stephen Batchelor, Christina Feldman and Akincano Weber provide a brief outline of Bodhi College and the core programme for 2018-19.

Secular Dharma; study, practice and community 
commencing February 2018
with Martine Batchelor, Stephen Batchelor, Renate Seifarth & Jenny Wilks,
at St Cuthman's and Gaia House in the UK, and Meeuwenveen in Holland.

This two year programme is based on the book After Buddhism: Rethinking the Dharma for a Secular Age by Stephen Batchelor. It is a unique opportunity to explore the teachings of the Buddha from a secular rather than a religious perspective, and to develop a practice that fully integrates the eightfold path into daily life. The course provides a creative learning environment that includes critical enquiry, open-minded discussion, contemplative reflection and practice.

The Mindfulness Course
commencing February 2018
with Chris Cullen, Christina Feldman, John Peacock & Akincano Weber,
at Beatenberg in Switzerland and Sharpham House in the UK

This programme (previously the Mindfulness Teachers' Development Programme) comprises of four stand-alone modules running over two years, and is designed specifically for those currently training in or teaching mindfulness-based applications in contemporary settings. The modules explore the foundations of mindfulness in Buddhist psychology and how these teachings inform contemporary mindfulness and continue to be a pathway to emotional and psychological healing and transformation. 

Committed Practitioners Programme
commencing March 2018
with Chris Cullen, Christina Feldman, John Peacock & Akincano Weber,
at Meeuwenveen in Holland

This inspirational and transformative two year programme is running in mainland Europe for the first time, and provides the opportunity for in-depth study of the early Buddhist teachings for experienced practitioners with significant retreat experience. The focus of this extended course is contemplative study, enabling continuity and a deeper exploration of the teachings than is possible in a silent retreat setting. Participants are encouraged and supported to integrate their learning into all aspects of their lives.
