Newcomers Night is a drop-in class where we rotate through some basic Buddhist ideas applicable to life in the 21st Century as well as teach our two main meditation practices, one to develop awareness the other to develop loving kindness.
From 14 November to 12 December we'll be running a 5-week refresher / crash course - a great opportunity if you have missed out during the last few months. Each evening is completely standalone, so come to one or many, there is no need for any previous knowledge for any evening.
The evening takes place in two halves. In the first half, we introduce an aspect of Buddhism with an opportunity for discussion. After a short tea break, we will explore one of two Buddhist meditations.
Buddhism - We introduce traditional teachings of the Buddha in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world.
Meditation - We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Mettā Bhāvanā (“development of loving kindness”), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world.
