We offer an extensive programme of Buddhist teachings, meditation, retreats and conferences. Our aim is to provide the opportunity for people to transform their minds and hearts into their highest potential for the benefit of others.
Many of you say you want more meditation at the centre so we're offering another drop-in class, this one every Friday night from 7 until 8.30pm. A perfect antidote to the frazzle many of us feel at the end of the working week. These won't be led sessions although they will kick off with a short teaching via podcast. Until 12 December.
