Our Meetings

Our Meetings


We meet every Thursday night at Oxford Falls Peace Park on the northern beaches of Sydney (more details below). 


Our weekly meetings consist generally of the following activities. This is only a guide however, we are flexible with our process in line with whatever appears to be most useful for sangha members. 


If you arrive late and the meditation or teaching is already under way that’s fine, simply enter quietly and join in. We usually leave a spare chair or two just for this purpose. At about 9:15 we will either finish the talk and have another short meditation before ending, or announce the time for those who want to leave, while some may want to continue the discussion.

When: Thursday nights from 7pm for a 7.10pm start, finishing at around 9.30pm
Where: Oxford Falls Peace Park, cnr Wakehurst Parkway and Dreadnought Rd, Oxford Falls
Cost: $5 towards costs plus a suggested minimum of $10 “dana” for teachers when we have them. If you'd like to attend but can't afford this please simply give what you can as we don't want cost to be a barrier to participation.
Bring: a mat or rug if you will be using a meditation cushion or stool (the floor is wooden floorboards)
Parking: there is a vacant lot opposite the Peace Park which is fine to park in as long as it’s not too wet. Otherwise, there is plenty of room along Dreadnought Rd.

New people are always welcome at Beaches Sangha. If you’d like to join in and are new to meditation or the Buddha’s teachings, or both, please contact us before you attend so that we can help make sure you get the most out of it.
