We hope that you can manage to come along on Sunday 30 September and meditate with us.

As usual there will be two groups, one for beginners and another for men who have been to our events before or are able to meditate without too much instruction.

After that we will enjoy a relaxed sociable lunch - please bring vegetarian food to share.

For the remainder of the afternoon there is generally a short presentation on meditation or a Buddhism related subject, followed by an open discussion around the topic and our practice. The emphasis of our group is...

Crucible of communication: Discovering new ways of being by letting go

Saturday, October 13, 2018 - 10:00 to Sunday, October 14, 2018 - 17:00

A weekend finding and negotiating new ways to thrive at the edge between what we guard; what binds and silences us, and the precious flame of our potential that longs to be lived.  It is a mixture of experiential Dharma teaching, pair and group process work.

The intention is to help you establish internal supports so that you can fruitfully turn towards and honour your struggles whilst recognising your natural capacity to find the next step that your life is calling out of you.

Sangha Day Festival

Sunday, November 18, 2018 - 10:00 to 16:30

All of us need other people to learn from. If we are to practise the Dharma we need the example and teaching of others who have done so before us, especially those who have gained insight into the nature of reality themselves.

It’s a joyous thing to mark the fact that we don’t have to go it alone – to rejoice in our friends and those who inspire us every day. 

So on Sangha Day we celebrate both the ideal of creating a spiritual community, and also the actual spiritual community which we are trying to build. 

Schedule TBA.
