Newcomers Night is every Thursday and aims to introduce people to Buddhism and Meditation in a friendly supportive environment.

The evening takes place in two halves. In the first half, introduce an aspect of Buddhism with an opportunity for discussion. After a short tea break, we explore one of two Buddhist meditations.

We introduce traditional teachings of the Buddha in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world. Usually the format is a talk, with an opportunity for questions and discussion.

We have a set series of topics that we cycle through, covering Buddhist ethics, meditation theory and Buddhist wisdom. Every night will stand alone so there is no need for any previous knowledge for any evening and you can start coming at any point in the cycle.

We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Development of Loving Kindness (Mettā Bhāvanā), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world.

We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.

Entry by donation/koha.
