Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I need to have been coming?

The day will be suitable to anyone who is familiar with the two meditations taught at the centre. But be aware there will be a total of several hours of meditation in the day, so you will need to be a keen meditator!

Do I need to book?

No - just turn up!

I can't make the whole day - can I come for just some of it?

Since this is a practice day, it is best to come for the whole day.

I'm not a very good cook - what food can I bring?

We can never have enough of the basics: things like salad, bread, hummus, crisps and fruit always go down well.

What is pūjā?

A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that includes chanting and making offerings.

It is possible that there will be several people who have never done pūjā before so we will be sure to give an introduction.

How much does the day cost?

All of our events are run on a donation basis. There is no set charge, we just ask you to give what you can to support the day. The suggested amount for this event is £12.
