Wednesday Dharma Night in person only

Wednesday Dharma Night in person only

The evening takes place in two halves. In the first half, we explore one of two Buddhist meditations. After a short tea break, we will introduce another aspect of Buddhism with an opportunity for discussion.

Classes are free but your donations are greatly appreciated. Make an online donation here


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 introduce traditional teachings of the Buddha in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world. Usually the format is a talk, followed by breaking into smaller groups for discussion.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a Buddhist?

No, the class is suitable for everyone who wants to meditate or learn about Buddhism.

What should I wear?

There are no special requirements, just whatever is comfortable to sit in.

Do I need to book?

No - just turn up!

Is it okay to join in the middle of the series?

Absolutely. Though of course you'll get those most out of the class by attending the whole series, there's no need to wait until the start of the next series if you want to start coming.

Can I just come for the meditation?

Of course, though the meditation we teach is itself a Buddhist teaching.

How much does the class cost?

We don't charge for our classes, and the team are not paid for their time. We simply ask that those who are able to do so make a donation to the centre to help us cover our running costs.

The suggested amount, based on how many people come and how much it costs to run the centre, would be what you would pay for say a Yoga class, but this is not a fixed cost and everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.
