Tuesday Sangha Evening (7.30 – 9.30pm)
Open to all who have some experience of meditating focusing on the breath and preferably are familiar with some basic Buddhist teachings such as the Four Noble Truths our Sangha night class is a chance to explore Buddhism and Meditation through a programme of Meditation, ritual and study. The introduction to Meditation and Buddhism course gives a particularly good entry into this class.
Our Sangha night’s are a combination of both stand alone evenings and themed blocks. Each block will be for 3 or 4 weeks where we will explore different themes. These will be run by a team of people who will each lead an evening on the theme. We would like to encourage people to come for the whole block to get the most out of it but if you can’t make all of them feel free to just drop in during these times.
Sangha night classes are run on a donation basis.

For this week’s Sangha Night, in the midst of the bustle and business of the Festival, we will share a simple evening of practice together – plenty of time to check in, followed by a bodyscan, then a period of sitting meditation and concluding with a mantra.
