Sangha Mornings (at the Buddhist Centre)
A class at the Buddhist Centre with led meditations of the two main practices, talks and discussion around a variety of Buddhist topics.
Suitable for all levels of experience.
The evening is usually structured in two halves. In the first half there is a meditation practice, and after a short comfort break, we will introduce an aspect of Buddhism with a talk from one of the team members.
From 13th Jan 2022 the class will move to in-person at the Buddhist centre for the new 'Tonglen' series - you will not be able to access the class online.
Classes are free but your donations are greatly appreciated. Make an online donation here
A new series on Practice Night with Tonglen, a meditation on giving and taking or exchanging self for other. Simply put, tonglen is the extension of metta into compassion.
In the next six weeks, we'll practise tonglen for our self, for people we already love, for others we are connected with, and ultimately for all beings struggling with life in these difficult times.
The current state of the world may feel overwhelming. With tonglen we can make a difference, add our contribution to alleviating the suffering in the world. Tonglen is not a practice of gloom, but an opportunity to do something positive for the world together.

Absolutely. Though of course you'll get those most out of the class by attending the whole series, there's no need to wait until the start of the next series if you want to start coming.
No - just arrive at the Buddhist centre to begin promptly at 7pm.
The class is best suited for those who have attended an entire series (or most of a series) on Newcomers Night or have completed an Introductory Course.
Since the meditation practice is usually without instruction, and the topics covered are quite in depth, this class is not well suited for newcomers.
We don't charge for our classes, and the team are not paid for their time. We simply ask that those who are able to do so make a donation to the centre to help us cover our running costs.
See the link on our web site to enable you to make a donation.
All are welcome at our classes however if you are under the age of 18 please contact us in advance of joining the session (firstname.lastname@example.org)
