Sangha Night

Thursdays 7.30-9.00pm (online or in person)

Suitable for those who have been coming to the Buddhist Centre for at least a few months.

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

 

 

 

19 May: Buddha Day puja with Sthanasraddha

26 May: Riding the Waves! with Balajit

Buddhism presents a radical, transformative way of relating to experience, including our emotions. But, as the Buddha warned, it’s very easy to pick up the teachings in a misguided and even unhelpful way. Tonight we will be focusing on the emotional dimension of practice. How can we skillfully relate to turbulent painful emotions and dullness in a way that kindles their transformation? How can we learn to trust the more expansive, open and pleasurable emotions as our practice deepens?
