Open Night

Open Night

Starting at 7:00 pm we explore an aspect of Buddhism through talks, videos or readings followed by an opportunity for discussion. Occasionally there will be meditation workshops or talks by visiting Triratna Order Members. 

After a short break we end the evening with a period of meditation however sometimes this order is reversed with meditation first.

The evenings finish at 9.00 pm. 

Once a month, when there isn’t a festival, the evening will start with meditation and is followed by a pūjā, a Buddhist devotional practice.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a Buddhist?

No you do not need to be a Buddhist. The class is suitable for people who are completely new to meditation and Buddhism and also those with some familiarity with Buddhism and meditation.

How much does the class cost?

We don’t charge for our classes, 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, is $5 to $15. Everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.

We can take donations by card or cash.

What is pūjā?

A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that engages our emotions and imaginations through the use of colour, beauty and celebration.

To feel fully and vibrantly alive, we need to be engaged with all the different aspects and levels of our being.
