Sangha Night

Sangha Night

This is our regulars evening and involves both meditation and Dharma exploration, with a tea break.


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.


A Guide to the Buddhist Path

Triratna's founding teacher, Sangharakshita, was a strikingly original thinker with a deep connection to the Three Jewels. After practicing for 20 years in India, he founded a new Buddhist movement in London in the 1960's.  His lectures and books are rooted in the depth of his appreciation of the Buddhist tradition, but also express the Dharma in ways that are relevant and accessible to a western cultural context. 

Over seven weeks we will explore some of the wisdom of our founding teacher, through some of his classic lectures on the Buddha and meditation.
