Basics of Buddhism Following the Sunday sit, most weeks
throughout the year we will have either a reading or a brief
talk and discussion. These will be about key aspects of the Buddha's
teaching which provide the ground for meditation practice. For
example, we are currently weaving a zig-zag course through the
Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path (with many diversions
to talk about questions that come up in our practice). Phone
Nique: 8953 6462 or Jenny: 8953 2776.
