Tools for Living your Life

A friendly and practical weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation, here in-person at the Centre. We cover a different topic each time, usually in series lasting a few weeks each, and each session includes a period of led meditation. There's often a one-week break between each series, so do check before setting out.

Everyone Welcome, We're here most Saturdays
