All Welcome: The class and talk is open to anyone who wishes to attend.
What to bring: Just yourself and your open mind/heart. We have chairs, cushions for sitting on the floor and a few shawls. You might like to bring a pen and notebook for making notes. If it is going to be your first time attending a teachings and you have a few queries you are welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We are also happy to arrange for someone to meet and greet you.
After the teachings there is time for questions and a cup of tea.
Community Days: On the first Sunday of the month we have a Community day at the centre. This starts at 12 noon after teachings. We have a shared lunch (please bring along a vegetarian dish to share). Then for those who are able to stay we spend a bit of time working/laughing/creating good karma together helping the monks out with some chores around the centre – gardening, painting, cleaning etc. Bring your tools and a happy heart <3
