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 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
