Sangha night has a varying Buddhist theme, and is open to all who have learnt meditation. 7-9:30 every Tuesday. Current theme: Expressing the Dharma.
2 September Vilasamani will be exploring how the Dharma informs his therapeutic work. He writes : “The Buddha is often referred to as the Great Physician, and the 4 Noble Truths are famously presented in the form of a medical diagnosis and prescription. But what does it mean to heal? Why in Chinese medicine is it said that “all sickness is home sickness”? And why is mindfulness so popular now in the psychology of health? For more on these questions, and some meditation tips on releasing inertia, join us on Tuesday evening.”
