Monday Sitting Group
The Monday Sitting Group welcomes experienced and beginning practitioners alike and no booking is necessary. It is usually led by a teacher with approximately a half-hour meditation followed by teaching, questions and discussion. These evenings are freely offered, with an encouragement to offer a donation (dana) to support the livelihood of the teachers.

Sangha is the Pali word for community. These meetings will be an opportunity to practise together, to discuss the teachings of the Buddha, to share food and to get to know each other. Please bring vegetarian food to share. Family members, including children, are welcome to join us, either for the whole session or for the lunch only. The sessions will be suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators.
The meetings will consist of a practice session usually comprising meditation, a recorded talk and a discussion. Lunch will start at 1pm.
The practice session will begin at 11.15. If you arrive after the meditation has started, we ask you to sit on one of the chairs at the back of the room, to avoid disturbing the meditation. You can come forward when it’s finished.
At 12.50, partners and children can come into the hall and join us for lunch.
Most of these meetings will be peer-led and will make use of recorded talks given by experienced Dharma teachers.
We will be using Florence Park Community Centre and St Margaret’s Institute for 2019.
Venerable Canda is now offering regular Sutta discussion evenings which are taking place at an Oxford venue. These will centre on the practical application of the teachings in our lives.
Anyone interested will just need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm and to get the address beforehand.
