Dharma Night

Thursday’s are the main evening of the week where people with different levels of experience can come together. These sessions are open to anyone who has completed an introductory course and would like to learn more about Buddhism. The format of a series on a particular theme gives more time to each topic so we can go more in depth, benefiting those who already have an established practice.

Every 7 weeks there is a new topic to explore, with guest speakers and Puja’s happening regularly. Each session is stand alone and runs from 7:15pm-9:15pm, doors from 7pm. No booking required.

You can still access the online Padlet board from the April Dharma Night Series: Metta as a Path to Insight.
All of Singhamati’s talks, led meditations and discussions on the Buddhas teaching on loving kindness as a path to insight can be accessed here.

COMING UP

NEW!! Dharma Night series:
Entering the river of the Dharma: Gazing at the tree of refuge and respect
Hosted by Dharmashalin 18 July – 29 August

An image can speak to us more deeply than an idea or concept. In this series we’ll be evoking the stream of energy flowing through the Buddha towards us and the vast imaginal space beyond him by exploring the Tree of refuge and respect. This depicts a lineage of knowledge and insight through Sangharakshita, some of his main teachers and prominent figures in Buddhist history, and a more mythical realm of Bodhisattvas. The series will finish marking the more human steps we can take on the Buddhist journey exploring the significance of Ordination and celebrating more Mitra Ceremonies.
