How To Meditate

Come and find out how simple meditation can help improve your state of mind, happiness and health.

March 5th – 11th: – Refuge Retreat 

Sessions: 8am, 10.30am (but not on the Monday), 4pm, 7pm.
The practice of going for refuge is the gateway to Buddhadharma. It entails understanding our situation as living beings and recognising that we need help if we are ever to bring our suffering to an end. With the understanding that the Three Jewels that are Buddha, Dharma and Sangha are completely reliable sources of protection from all suffering, we turn to them for help.

There is no charge for retreat but donations are gratefully accepted.
