Sangha is the Pali word for community. These meetings will be an opportunity to practise together, to discuss the teachings of the Buddha, to eat together 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.
From January, we expect to be trying out a few different venues, until we find one that really suits us. Keep looking at this site for further information.
