Regulars Night

Regulars Night

Please read our Alert Level 2 safety procedures before you arrive.

 Starting at 7:00 pm we present 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.

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

How long do I need to have been coming?

The class is best suited for those who have attended an entire series (or most of a series) on Newcomers Night or have completed an Introductory Course.

I can’t make it to any of the introductory classes, can I come to this class instead?

Since the meditation practice is usually without instruction, and the topics covered are quite in depth, this class is not well suited for newcomers.

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.

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.

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.
