Clacton-on-Sea Saṅgha Night

Every Thursday, 7:00pm - 9:30pm.

The evening is suitable for all levels of experience, however newcomers may prefer to come to our Introductory Course.

The evening is usually structured in two halves. In the first half there is a meditation practice, and after a short tea break, we will explore another aspect of Buddhism either with a talk and discussion.
