Karma seems pretty simple to most people; do good things, good things come back, do bad things, they come back bad. But is this how Karma works? What about bad things happening to good people? And is it really the case that ‘everything relies on intentions’ in Buddhism? Ajahn Sadaro will talk about some different ways we can understand Karma in order to make sense of why sometimes intentions behind our actions is not enough.

Optional Pre-event Special: Meditation Experience Study.
From 6pm, Ajahn Sadaro invites you to take part in an experiment about meditation experience and interpersonal relationships. Only 30 minutes. Please bring a laptop. For more information and to sign up, click HERE
