Some suggestions of how to continue your practice whilst the Centre is not available.

Whilst you are unable to attend the Centre, these resources are available to support your practice.


The outbreak of COVID-19 is a graphic reminder of the interconnectedness of all life. It is also a reminder to apply the Buddha’s teachings to respond with kindness, clarity and fearlessness. We would like to extend mettā and well-wishing to all beings, especially to those who have been affected in any way.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. Despite these uncertain times we can continue to support each other in different ways and continue to turn towards the teachings of the Buddha.
