Our meetings provide a supportive environment where we can meditate together and also learn about Buddhism and Buddhist practice.
The evening includes sitting and walking meditation, and also a reflection, talk or discussion on issues arising from people’s practice and on relevant Buddhist themes. Before or after meditation there is often a short recitation (in English) and an incense offering, in which our practice is dedicated for the benefit of all beings. It is fine for newcomers just to listen.
There is also a cup of tea and the opportunity to say hello to members of the group. Group members are a variety of ages and come from diverse backgrounds including, for example, nursing, teaching, medicine, being unemployed, building and joining, studying, therapy, home and family caring, and business.
