Drop-in meditation, yoga and Sangha events

This is a new initiative we are starting in 2018, which is an evening for the Sangha to come together and hear/practice the Dharma together. Inviting all Mitras and Order members, as well as all those who have taken all the Wednesday night Level 2 courses.

Our first 6 week session will look at the Tiratanavandana, a traditional salutation to the Three Jewels, beginning on Tuesday 16th January. The team is Maitrinaga, Abhayavaca and Dassini. We will have 2 evenings on the Buddha, 2 on the Dharma and 2 on the Sangha. Come for all six evenings or drop-in on any night. 

Our aim for Dharma Nights is to create an in-depth immersion into the rich world of Dharma teachings, and an opportunity to come together regularly as a practice community.

The evening will run from 19.00 - 21.00 pm. Hope to see you there!

This weekly meditation drop-in is suitable for complete beginners, and also those with some experience of the mindfulness of breathing and metta bhavana (development of loving kindness) meditations.  

The newcomers class covers the following areas: posture, body awareness, the foundations of mindfulness practice and developing kindness for oneself and others. Those new to meditation will gain a practical ability in the two foundation meditation practices we teach. Meditation can produce many benefits, from reducing stress and aiding sleep to enjoying clearer states of mind, improving concentration and developing confidence and other positive emotions such as compassion and equanimity.

Time: 14.30pm - 15.30pm
Two classes: Regulars & Newcomers.

There is no fee for the course. All our meditation and Buddhism events have no charge.

Donations are welcome; you can donate online, or at the centre, as you wish.
