our new theme for Sangha Night
commencing Tuesday 2nd May
 

According to the Buddha’s teaching, there is no limit to the human mind, nothing is beyond its reach. Mind in Harmony is the title of a book written by Subhuti, a senior Order member and teacher in Triratna. The material contained therein comes out of his life-long experience of communicating the Dharma, and in particular the Yogacara Abhidharma, through giving talks and leading retreats in Europe, the US and India.

Subhuti dedicates the book first and foremost to his teacher, Urgyen Sangharakshita, who himself published Know Your Mind, an accessible introduction to Buddhist psychology. Both books are described as eminently practical guides to the system of mind training to be found in the classical Abhidharma material.

Join us as autumn unfolds into winter to explore ways of engaging directly with your mind, to unlock its potential and develop the means to live a happier and more fruitful life.

We gather every Tuesday evening at 96 Halifax St in the city, starting at 6.45pm with meditation (there is also guided meditation for newcomers), followed by a tea break and then time exploring our theme, concluding at 9.15pm.
