Sangha Night

Sangha Night

This is our regulars evening and is usually split into two parts, with a tea break between:


We practice two kinds of meditation - the Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and the Mettā Bhāvanā (“development of loving kindness”), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world. Each week we alternate between the two practices.


We introduce and explore the teachings of the Buddha in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world. Usually the format is a talk, followed by breaking into smaller groups for discussion. 

There's no fee for the evening, although we welcome donations either in cash on the night, or via our donations page.

Living Ethically — Not About About Being Good

Buddhist ethics are not about conforming to a set of conventions, not about ‘being good’ in order to gain material, social or religious rewards. Instead, as we will explore through talks, exercises and discussion, living ethically springs from the awareness that other people are essentially no different from ourselves.
