Each season the London Buddhist Centre publishes a wonderful magazine and programme packed full of great articles, poems, images and more.
In this edition we are treated to a celebration of the children and families in the Sangha, paintings by Kusalasara, a poem by Vishvantara, a cartoon strip on hindrances to meditation, banker-turned-Buddhist fundraiser Amalavajra, from FutureDharma Fund, on love and money, and music maker Tim Exile features in the latest instalment of Diary of a London Buddhist.
Although we are not currently running introductory courses, Oxford Buddhist Centre holds classes on Tuesday nights which are suitable for newcomers.
We begin at 6pm with a drop-in meditation, where we teach either the Mindfulness of Breathing or the Development of Loving Kindness. You can arrive at from 5pm for a bring-your-own dinner and chance to meet people.
At 7pm we have Sangha Night, which will follow the format of talk/discussion on a theme, tea break and then a mediation finishing at around 9.15pm.
