1st Thursday of every month
“CHENREZIG PUJA" Evening
Chenrezig symbolises compassion and a Puja is a practice involving chanting, visualisation and meditation. This is an aspirational ritualistic practice to imagine how it might feel to have limitless compassion for ourselves, others, and discover what stands in our way
ALL Other Thursday Evenings
“Meditation, Learn, Question, Reflect"
Each evening is opened with some chanting and some time to meditate. Guided meditations are offered if needed, if not we will mediate in silence.
Some time is then devoted to leaning, discussion and reflection. This is an open forum style, whereby the facilitator will present an aspect of Buddhist teachings and philosophy. The group will discuss the practical applications of these ideas and their own experiences of integrating Buddhist teaching into their day-to-day life.
The evenings close with some more chanting and a dedication.
