Every Wednesday we meet as a sangha (community). We meditate in the first half of the evening and then explore a different aspect of Buddhism in the second half, following a short tea break.
There are no classes over the holidays – we meet again on 8th January 2020
Wednesday 8th January
Reflecting on the old…
Looking forward to the new
In this, our first meeting of 2020, we’ll be rejoicing in whatever has been helpful to us in our practice in the year just gone, and looking ahead with into the new year and beyond. We’ll be outlining exciting plans for the Group in 2020 and 2021 and asking for help from the sangha to make these plans happen.
As part of the evening we’ll be joining together in a dedication ceremony and, as part of this, we’ll be connecting with the Buddha and with each other through the tying of red bracelets around our wrists. These symbolise the unity of the sangha and our commitment to practice. Many of us leave them on the wrist for most of the year as a reminder of the values that we hold dear.
