Three Jewels Night

Come and join with sangha friends for our weekly puja. Puja is a recitation of verses and mantra chanting, where we remind ourselves of our potential for enlightenment. These evenings include talks, teachings and meditation to help deepen our practice. We are currently exploring The Mandala of the Five Buddhas.

Arrive from 7pm for tea and the chance to socialise. We start in the shrine room at 7.45pm.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

How do Buddhist ethics differ from a more conventional approach to the subject – and why is the cultivation of energy so important in the Buddhist life? We’ll be exploring these topics through looking at William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell – an illuminated book which is still exciting and challenging, centuries after it was first created. For OMs, Mitras, regulars and anyone who has done a course with us. Led by Sarvananda

Sun 28 Jan 10am – 4pm


Please bring vegetarian, ideally vegan, lunch to share

Parinirvana Day

Sun 11 Feb 10am - 4pm

A day when we celebrate the Buddha’s final passing into Nirvana. Death is the greatest teaching on impermanence but is hard to embrace with equanimity. With the help of reflective exercises, we’ll shine a light on the reality of our own impermanence. The day will include meditation, puja, readings and practical exercises. Led by Vajragupta
