Updated, January 26th 2017: 

Hi everyone! We’re going to have to shift how we do our weekly meditations now that the new Google+ is harder to avoid. It’s not possible to make events with hangout links as we’re used to doing. 

For tomorrow’s meditation - Friday 27th at 11am EST/4pm UK - we’ll meet on Skype. Connect with user thebuddhistcentre.com then message us and we’ll add you to the call. We’ll work towards something more permanent as soon as possible!

See you for some...
