Our Meetings

Our Meetings

We meet on the firstThursday night of the month (with a couple of exceptions) at Oxford Falls Peace Park on the northern beaches of Sydney (more details below). During COVID lockdowns we meet online (contact us for details) and we also sometimes get together virtually for meditation on other Thursdays. We communicate about this via a private Telegram chat, so if you'd like to join in please do contact Kristen (details below) and we can include you.

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. 

Our meetings consist of the following activities:
7.00arrive & chat
welcome & introduction of new members
7.50break (tea, bikkies & a chat)
8.05dharma study
9.25close/pack up 

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: Casual attendance is $15 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 these fees please simply give what you can as we don't want cost to be a barrier to participation. If you would like to come regularly, let us know and we can include you in the yearly fee arrangement.

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.
