Sangha night

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.

Follow us on Facebook or email info@edinburghbuddhistcentre.org.uk and ask to join our mailing list for updates on upcoming sangha night activities.

Dec 03 – An evening of practice with Sraddhadharini 
Dec 10 – Meditation with Sasanaratna 

In one of Pema Chodron’s books she conveys meditation primarily in terms of ‘resting in open, present space.’ In this workshop led by Sasanaratna, we will explore some of the implications; the different ways in which space manifests in body and mind and how to relate our basic experience creatively.

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.
