Beaches Sangha Schedule 2020

In 2020 Beaches Sangha will be meeting for meditation and dharma study on the first Thursday of the month. 

We'll be 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.
