Three Jewels Night

JOIN THE SANGHA ONLINE EACH WEEK

Three Jewels Night Relaunch - A Theme for 2021

On January 5th we'll be relaunching 3 Jewels Night for the New Year.
We're keen to try something a bit different, and so we're going to have a single theme for the whole of the year.

Throughout 2021 we'll be looking at the Triratna System of practice. So we'll be exploring Integration, Positive Emotion, Receptivity, Spiritual Death and Spiritual Rebirth.

We'll be exploring it in all sorts of ways. Talks and Discussion, Reflection, Ritual, Shared Practice and most importantly by simply connecting as a Sangha.

Each week will be stand-alone, so you don't need to commit to the whole season, and you don't need to have any particular level of practice.

We're also going to spend a bit more time catching up with each other, and so we'll start each evening with a chance to have a bit of a chat and just reconnect with the Sangha. Something we've all been missing during the various lockdowns.

It would be great to see as many of you as possible so we can start the New Year together by sharing our practise, our friendship and our Sangha.

Every Tuesday, 7.15 – 9pm

Here's the link to join via Zoom (note it's the same each week)

Sunday 7th March

A study morning for Order Members and Mitras, with our Centre President Paramabandhu

Join us on Zoom for a chance to study with Paramabandhu

In Bhante Sangharakshita’s seminal lecture, Enlightenment as Experience and Non-Experience, Bhante explores how our conception of the goal can help or hinder us. In this study morning, we will look at his ideas, including our conception of the goal and of ourselves as practitioners, and how this may affect our practice of and progress in the dharma life.

It promises to be a great morning of study and a chance to connect with each other.
