Saturday Dharma Morning
The morning takes place in two halves. You are welcome to join us for either or both.
In the first half, starting at 9:30am is a meditation practice. The class will split into two groups, a smaller group for those who are new to meditation and another group for those who attend the class regularly. In the beginners group, we will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice. Once you have been coming a while, the main group offers a more lightly led practice.
After a short break, at 10:15am there will be a talk and discussion to explore another aspect of Buddhism.
Pease note the class will not be running on 11 December, 25 December, or 1 January. See below for details.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to book?
No, just turn up!
Is it okay to join the middle of a series?
Absolutely. Although the second half of the class usually follows a particular theme for a few weeks, each morning stands alone and there's no need to wait until the start of the next series if you want to start coming.
Can I come just for the meditation, or just for the dharma session?
Of course! If you're just joining for the Dharma session, join us around 10:15am.
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.
Do I need to be a Buddhist?
No - the class is suitable for everyone, and the guided meditation group is especially suited to those who are 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.
