Sangha mornings are occasions when regular practitioners of our centre and community come together to sit at the feet of the Buddha, explore his Dharma and endeavour to create Sangha. Saturday mornings commence with salutation of the shrine and the chanting of the refuges and precepts before engaging in meditation practice. There will be the opportunity to take part in a more introductory, led meditation in our downstairs shrine room, therefore newcomers are still welcome to attend.
Each week, there will be talks and discussions on a range of themes which explore the essence of the centre's Threefold Vision; The Radical, The Sangha and The Mythical. For more information on the Threefold Vision click here.
Saturday Class Theme for Jan – Mar 2015
The new session of the Saturday Sangha morning starts on 10th January 2015. It is entitled; Living the Dharma Life and starts with what the Buddha had to say about how we make a living. 2500 years ago the Buddha’s earliest teachings included how to support ourselves and our dependents ethically. How relevant are these teachings today in our complex society with its values? The session will include members of our Sangha and order members from further afield talking personally about how they balance the need to live in this society with their deepest beliefs and ethical values.
Is it possible to live outside of a monastic setting, as the early disciples did, and be a committed Buddhist? Come along and find out how some of us manage to balance ideal and the real.
