The Sangha Night class is a chance to explore Buddhism and meditation through a rolling programme of presentations and small group discussions. Open to all who have learnt meditation. A Buddhism course is a good way in to this class, but you are very welcome whether or not you have done a course. Tuesdays 7-9.30pm, by donation. You can listen to recordings of some of the talks at www.freebuddhistaudio.com.

Current Theme: What do you need to meditate well?

A three part course, running 2, 9 & 16 April, led by special guest teacher Vajradaka, one of the founders of Vajraloka, one of Triratna’s main meditation retreat centres.   He is known for his clear and easy-going manner.

In the course we will explore how all the main aspects of ourselves can come together into a dynamic and creative process of awareness and development in the context both of meditation and everyday mindfulness.

Topics will include:
– Using our primary faculties to develop deep awareness and come into a clear mind.
– Exploring ‘relevant thinking’.
– Using  imagination in a useful and effective way.

These are themes which Vajradaka has been developing for many years and on which he has come up with a model which is easy to understand and practise for people of all levels of experience.
