Beaches Sangha Schedule 2021

In 2021 Beaches Sangha is meeting for meditation and dharma study on the first Thursday of the month (where COVID restrictions allow). We meet via Zoom most other Thursday nights for a meditation together and sometimes a discussion, where a topic emerges.

We're studying the book "After Buddhism: Rethinking the Dharma for a Secular Age" by Stephen Batchelor with the corresponding workbook published by Tuwhiri Publishing. 

If you'd like to participate, you'll need both of these. You'll need to either download or buy Batchelor's book. We currently have one spare printed copy of the workbook available if you attend a session. Otherwise, it can be purchased in various formats here.
