Learn how to meditate and hear about the unique perspective on life that Buddhism has to offer, in a relaxed and friendly environment.
- From October 2018 we are starting a new cycle of talks on the foundations of Buddhism. Each week one of our group of speakers – all long-term students of Lama Jampa Thaye and experienced Buddhist practitioners – will give a talk on one part of the foundations of Buddhism so that over a few weeks they will present an overview of the Buddhist path and what it entails. These sessions are suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience.
Our friendly and informal meetings take place every Tuesday at 8pm, providing an introduction to Buddhist meditation, teachings and practice. The sessions provide an introduction to the method of calm-abiding meditation which is fully explained and practised. The evenings include a short talk on a topic about basic Buddhist teachings, and end with a short contemplation on the topic, followed by time for discussion and refreshments. These sessions are held for all those who wish to find out more about Buddhism and to practise meditation. They last about an hour. In order to get a fuller understanding of these profound Buddhist teachings, you are recommended to attend at least a few sessions with us. Everyone is welcome whether or not you have any previous experience. There is no need to book. See below for recommended reading.
