Every Saturday, 11:00am - 1:00pm.
Please note Dharma Morning will not be running on 30th September, 4th November or 18th November. This is due to events happening at the centre which were arranged before we started running the class. We will be back to running every Saturday after this.
The morning takes place in two halves. In the first half, we explore an aspect of Buddhism with talks, workshops and discussion. After a short tea break, there will be a meditation practice.
In this series we will be looking at the Six Pāramitās (perfections) of Mahāyāna Buddhism with talks on each Pāramitā interspersed with led meditation practice mornings.

Absolutely. Though of course you'll get those most out of the class by attending the whole series, there's no need to wait until the start of the next series if you want to start coming.
If you know the stages to the two meditations taught at the centre, the class will be suitable for you.
While our introductory classes are the best choice for those new to meditation, you're very welcome to attend this class if you can't make our Wednesday Newcomers Night or Friday Lunchtime Drop-In classes.
If you're not familiar with the meditations we teach, private instruction can be provided.
We start fairly promptly at 11am. If you like, come a little early to chat to one of the team.
All of our classes are run on a donation basis. The suggested amount is £7, but this is not a set charge. We just ask you to give what you can to support the class, and everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.
We're just off St. Botolph's Roundabout, across from the Colchester Town Station, just to the left of Mersea Road. Parking is available in Napier Road Car Park (first right off Mersea Road), a few minutes walk away, for £1.50.Find Us
