We meet every Wednesday from 7:15 pm to 9:30 pm for our Sangha Night (Community Night) at the Quaker Meeting House, St John’s Street, Bury St Edmunds. For more detailed instructions on how to find us please see the Contact us page.
Everyone is welcome to come along, whatever their level of experience. The class format is usually meditation followed by a talk or discussion on an aspect of Buddhist practice. If you are new to meditation we can offer full instruction and support.
Although our evenings do follow a coherent programme, each evening is self contained, so it is not necessary to have attended previous evenings in the programme – come along any time.
The classes are by donation. To cover our costs we would suggest you give £5 if you can. However, if you cannot afford that amount, for whatever reason, then please do not let that stop you coming along – we would be very pleased to meet you!
