For those who are looking for an opportunity to meditate with others. Whether you are new to Buddhism or have an established practice you are welcome at the Bath Buddhist Group.
Meetings will continue to focus on a period of meditation (sitting and walking) from 8.00pm to 9.00pm unless there is a speaker.
A couple of changes have been introduced this term:
From 7.30 to 8.00pm all are welcome to join a weekly informal discussion about meditation, and the teachings of the Buddha. Tea will be served at this time.
Before the 8.00pm sitting begins, the member leading the period of meditation will offer a few minutes of guidance for those new to meditation.
Those who wish only to sit for half an hour are welcome to leave at the short break at 8.30pm.
In order to cover the costs of hiring and heating the room, there is an offering bowl on the book table. No obligation to contribute, but a donation of £3 from each person would ensure that we remain solvent.
KEEPING WARM: although the group's room is heated, some people bring a blanket or warm clothing to ensure a comfortable body temperature during meditation in colder months.
