Dear friends,
Buddhism offers us an inspiring vision of what it means to be a human being, but it doesn’t stop there. It also gives us ways to transform our emotions - and our life - in the light of this vision.

Using a combination of teaching, discussion, meditation and practical exercises, this six-week course will help you deepen your vision, develop more emotional warmth and positivity, and apply the wisdom of Buddhism to all areas of your life.

INVITATION TO WEEKEND RETREAT

Wed, 27 Apr, 2022 - 12:44

Remember meditation retreats?

That chance to go off-line, forget about To Dos, relax in beautiful countryside, meditate more deeply and open to the radiance of your mind.

I’d like to invite you to enjoy all of this once again, or perhaps for your first time. Come on a four day retreat over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend 1-5 June with me and others from Frome.

The retreat takes place at Adhisthana, an international Buddhist Centre near Malvern. It’s open to complete newcomers as well as experienced meditators....

BREAK OUT : Beginners meditation and Buddhism course.

Thu, 17 Mar, 2022 - 15:26

Frome sangha are delighted to invite you to our first face to face course on Buddhism and meditation for two years.

Your mind has vast potential for freedom and happiness. Buddhism calls this Awakening. And it offers a path of training to achieve it.

But this potential can feel far from our everyday experience. Our minds are often troubled by restlessness, anger and confusion.

This has always been the human condition. For 2,500 years Buddhism has offered a path to help people just like you to...

Frome Wednesday and Saturday classes - update

Tue, 17 Mar, 2020 - 21:23


Dear friends
Following today’s briefing by the Prime Minister, we have regretfully decided to pause our meditation  and Buddhist activities around Frome until (at least) late April.
With so much global uncertainty, the best we can do is take care, stay informed and grounded. We’ll keep you posted when it seems safe to re-start classes. The Wednesday night regulars’ class, which was due to begin again Wed 29 April, and the Saturday morning introductory meditation at the Welshmill Hub will begin again once...
