Men’s Study

The evening takes place in several parts:

Firstly, there is the option to arrive at 5:45pm to check in with others before the class starts.

For the actual class, you can arrive any time from 6:20pm and we will start promptly at at 6:30pm with a meditation practice. We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Mettā Bhāvanā (“development of loving kindness”), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world. Each week we alternate between the two practices. We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.

After a short break, there will be a talk and discussion to explore another aspect of Buddhism. We introduce Dharma in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life for people in the modern world. Usually the format is a short presentation, followed by breaking into smaller groups for discussion.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book?

No, just turn up! This class is on a drop-in basis, so come along at any time.

Can I come just for the meditation, or just for the dharma session?

Most people choose to stay for the whole evening, but the catchup beforehand is optional.

What should I wear for the meditation and how should I sit?

There are no special requirements, just make sure you'll be comfortable to sit for the length of the meditation. If you're joining us online and don't have meditation equipment, a dining room chair will be perfectly suitable. Meditation equipment is available for use in the Centre.

Do I need to be a Buddhist?

No - the class is suitable for everyone, especially those who are completely new to meditation and Buddhism.

How much does the class cost?

We don't charge a fixed price for our classes but instead invite you to make a donation to the centre to help us cover our running costs.

A donation of $10-20 would help us to cover our costs, but everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.
