Tuesday Dharma Night 7-9pm

Every Tuesday night, all year round we explore the Dharma together. A community of order members, mitras and people who have completed the level 2 buddhism courses, get together to study a particular aspect of the Buddha’s  teaching together. Using the 3-fold path of wisdom: hearing, reflecting and meditating on the Dharma. We take a slow approach to a text or talk around this year’s theme of Kshanti. Kshanti means patience, forgiveness, tolerance and it is one of the qualities of a bodhisattva; a being that devotes all of their energies to ending suffering for all. 

Repeats every week every Tuesday. 7.00pm to 9.00pm
