Every Tuesday night, all year round, we explore the Dharma and practise together. Drop in when you can or make it a regular part of your Dharma life. Open to order members, mitras and people who have completed all three of the level 2 buddhism courses. We get together to study a particular aspect of the Buddha’s teaching, to practice meditation, or to take part in puja.
