    Saturday Morning Meditation and Buddhism Drop-in class

    We start with meditation at 10:15. After the tea break, you can continue to explore meditation, or alternatively you can join the Buddhism option. Our theme for the New Year is the five spiritual faculties: mindfulness, confidence, energy, unification of mind, and insight. The second Saturday of each month there is a talk on one of these themes (click here), and on the other Saturdays we get together to discuss the practical implications of these fundamental Buddhist teachings. All are welcome, and you don't need to come each week.
