Thursdays 7.00 for 7.30pm
Hosted by Singhamati and Team
At the heart of the Birmingham Buddhist Centre is a community of people that are exploring and practising Buddhism – this is the sangha. Every Thursday night is Sangha Night, where we come together each week to create a nourishing place of friendship, connection and depth, whilst enjoying collective meditation, Dharma and devotional practice. Like most of our events, it is run on a donation basis.
The programme is usually:
7.30pm Meditation, 8.20pm Tea, 8.45pm Talks and Discussion, 9.45pm Tidy up and finish.
You can find talks from previous seasons on our Talks Page.
20 June. Summer Sangha Gathering
Join us for our bi-annual Sangha Picnic!
It’s a chance to gathering together with friends old and new to share food and great company in the beautiful Buddhist Centre garden.
All are welcome – family, friends and children are invited.
Please bring vegan and vegetarian food to share.
27 June. Visiting Speaker: Saraha, “Falling in Love with a Burning World”
“Thank god it’s empty!” Falling in love with a burning world. What memories stay with you year after year? Which breath do you wish you could take again? Whose smile is the most beautiful? What is this love that you talk about?
Saraha will be known to many of us as a former Men’s Mitra Convenor – and for his many years of leading classes at the Buddhist Centre before his move to Ecodharma in Spain a few years ago. A passionate and inspiring speaker, he’ll be sharing some of his latest reflections on the Dharma life.
