Three Jewels Night

An evening of talks, ritual and the opportunity to connect with sangha friends. In July Three Jewels night begins a new series: ‘Training the mind in meditation’. The four stages of the mindfulness of breathing and the five of the metta bhavana are the bare bones of our meditation practice. We deepen and keep alive our practice by exploring the nature of awareness and hearing some of the teachings the Buddha gave about how to work in meditation. Led by Aryadhi, Bodhivajra, Sujana and Vajragupta.

Arrive from 6.30pm for tea and the chance to socialise.

Every Tuesday, 7 – 9pm
