Sangha night is Edinburgh Buddhist Centre’s weekly study night for regulars. It is held on Tuesday evening from 7.30-9.30pm at the Healthy Life Centre, 35-37 Bread Street.
Sangha night is a chance to deepen your practice and explore Buddhism and meditation through a programme of meditation, ritual and study.
Sangha nights are a combination of both stand alone evenings and themed blocks. Each block will be for 3 or 4 weeks and run by a team of people. 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.
Is sangha night right for you?
Sangha night is open to everyone who has some experience of meditating and preferably is familiar with some basic Buddhist teachings such as the Four Noble Truths.
If you have attended our introduction to meditation and Buddhism course or been on a week-long retreat at one of the Triratna Buddhist Retreat Centres, such as Dhanakosa in Perthshire, you are very welcome to come along to Sangha night.
Jan 8, 15 & 29 The Doorway to Living Dharma, led by Dhiraka and Elliott.
This three week block on the concept of the Middle Way.
In discussion and in workshop exercises we will take a closer look at this deceptively simple idea. What exactly is the middle way and how do we judge for ourselves? In a sense the whole Buddhist tradition stems from insight into the middle way. Come along to help us figure it out… answers are not for free – come prepared to think hard, feel deeply and share your wisdom.
