The Hornchurch Buddhist Group began in January 2013 and over the past four and half years has become a lively and friendly gathering of local people of all ages and varying backgrounds who together are deepening their understanding and practice of Buddhism and meditation.
Buddhism offers the vision of a life lived with awareness, compassion and creativity and the tools needed to transform our own lives so as to bring this vision into being.
Classes are held on Monday evenings in room 12 at The Fairkytes Arts Centre, starting promptly at 7.15 and finishing at 9.30. There is no need to book, just come along for the beginning of the class. Everyone is welcome to come to our classes; you do not need to think of yourself as a Buddhist to listen to the Buddha’s teachings (the Dharma) or to meditate.
Commencing on Monday September 4th and through the autumn the group will be undertaking an exploration of the fundamental Buddhist teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. This presents a particularly good opportunity for newcomers to come along and discover Buddhism.
In late November the group will be undertaking its fourth annual weekend retreat in Sussex.
Newcomers are always welcome.
Best wishes Saddhabhaya and Nandaketu
