Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I need to have been coming?

The day will be suitable to all women who are familiar with the two meditations taught at the centre.

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.

Do I need to book?

No - just turn up!

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

Of course! Many people who come for half the day will come just for the morning, leaving at lunch time, or the other way around. But you're welcome to come for whatever parts of the day you can make - just try to turn up at one of the times on the programme so we're not in the middle of an activity.

What is pūjā?

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

It is probable 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.
