Sangha Night | Tue 7:30pm

“Tools for Building a Sustainable Practiceis our theme for 2021


Mitra Month

Throughout October mitras (friends) are here to share their practices with you. Hear from the younger members of the Sangha, delight in the sharings from Order Members in India and much more! We end the month with a practise session – meditation and ritual.

This year our theme is the ‘Five Spiritual Faculties’. These are mindfulness, meditation, faith, energy and wisdom. Hear Sangharakshita (the founder of Triratna) talk about them here.

This way of looking at practice helps us to see the multi-dimensional nature of our practices and approach to how we live our lives. We aim to bring the whole of ourselves in. The mind, the body, the emotions… none of these can be left out if we truly want to transform ourselves and the world around us/

If you’d like to catch up with what’s been happening at Sangha Night, subscribe to our YouTube channel for all the latest ones or our Listen Again pages for material from 2020 and before.

Sangha Night is for the community (anyone who has done the intro course, or has been to the introductory classes for a number of months) to get together to talk, meditate, hear the teachings of the Buddha and discuss them.

Find out what’s happening at Sangha Night on our events page. We would love to welcome you.
