Suitable for those who have been coming to the Buddhist Centre for more than three months. 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 to create a 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.
You don’t need to book to attend online. The login for the class is here. Meeting ID: 845 7850 1931.
September: What is Truth?
October: Spiritual Friendship and the Four Tantric Rites
Spiritual friendship is the whole of the spiritual life. (The Buddha)
We are living in new and challenging times. What impact has that had on your experience of friendship – your capacity to be a friend – your need for friendship? This series offers a timely opportunity to reflect on the power and place of friendship in our Dharma lives. Friendship is a transformational practice and the Tantric Rites – pacification, prospering, destruction and fascination – highlight the different energies at play. Join us to learn about how to wield these energies when practising the art and mystery of friendship.
