Beara Meditation Evenings

Exploring Buddhist Wisdom in Our Lives
Wednesdays 7pm to 8:30pm, February 22 to April 5

For centuries people have been practising what the Buddha taught to develop their qualities of peace, compassion and understanding. In these evenings we explore this together through discussion and meditation.

All are welcome; especially those of us on Beara – whether you have an established meditation practice, or would like to.

Our aspiration is to meet regularly to study & practice what the Buddha taught; these 6 weeks are a start.

Each evening is a mixture of reflection, discussion, Q&A, and guided meditation.

We hope you’ll be able to join us.
