Three Jewels Night

An evening of talks, ritual and the opportunity to connect with sangha friends. In May we have a new series of talks on how we practice the Dharma in our every day life. Time on the cushion and on retreat is important, but it is in our everyday life where we spend most of our time and where transformation of mind can take place. Led by Aryadhi, Bodhivajra, Sujana and Vajragupta.

Tues 15 May Sujana will give a short introduction to the theme followed by meditation and puja.

Tuesday 22 May Erika Narkiewicz and Sujana will give talks on what is at the heart of their practice.

Arrive from 6.30pm for tea and the chance to socialise.

Every Tuesday, 7 – 9pm
