Sangha Night

Sangha Night Drop in Class

For the time being we are holding all our classes online.

Every Wednesday, 7pm to 9pm (doors open at 6:45pm)
Our Wednesday Sangha Nights are dedicated to supporting anyone wishing to experience and share the benefits of Buddhist practice. We are committed to strengthening the connection between personal practice and positive action in the world around us, and providing a welcoming and safe place for all those who want to participate. You are welcome here.

Our theme for 2020 is "Simply Practice" - both a suggestion and a description of how we might sustain ourselves as we respond to the events of the year ahead. 

Most evenings are informal and interactive. Introductions are followed by meditation and after the tea break there's usually a talk, workshop or discussion. No particular experience is required, though if you have not meditated before we recommend first attending one of our introductory classes.  Suggested donation: $10–$5, or whatever you can afford. If you'd like a brief orientation please arrive before 7pm.

Meditation and Awakening the Heart

Sep 9, 16, 23 and 30

May all beings enjoy happiness and the root of happiness;
May they be free from suffering and the root of suffering; 
May they not be separated from the great happiness devoid of suffering; 
May they dwell in the great equanimity free from craving, aggression and delusion. 

(Bodhicitta prayer)

This next four weeks in September, returning to our theme of simplicity, we’ll focus on meditation and the bodhicitta – the awakening heart/mind that longs for the well-being of all.  We’ll explore the depths of the mindfulness of breathing, loving-kindness, and related meditations.
