Dharma Night: The Way of Metta

January 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT

Under tier 4 restrictions we will not be running this Dharma Night class in-person.

However, we will record this event and release it on our YouTube channel – usually on the following Thursday or Friday. Subscribe to stay up to date with all of our weekly videos.

Dharma Night at the Brixton Buddhist Community

Dharma Night is a public class for anyone interested in understanding and practicing the simple and profound teachings of Buddhism. With practice, this path is said to lead to a state of mind beyond dissatisfaction and suffering, toward a mind that is light, spacious and filled with joy.

This class is especially suitable for those newer to Buddhism, who might be exploring Dharma teachings for the first time.

Each class covers a fundamental Buddhist theme or teaching and is built around a discussion between two experienced teachers. There will also be a short guided meditation, tea break and a chance for questions.


Dharma Night: From Metta to Insight

This 6 week Dharma Night series explores the experience and expression of Mettã. ‘Mettã’ is a Pali word which almost fully captures the spiritual ideal of Buddhist practitioners, yet it is an experience which cannot be described by words alone.

In this second week, we discuss how the point of cultivating Mettã is to bring us closer to realisation. Any kindly or benevolent thought or action, while good, can only be an expression of mettã in so far as it brings us closer to seeing the true nature of our, and others, existence.

** Please note – social distancing and wearing of masks is required to attend this class. **

Spaces are limited, so a free **booking is required** to reserve your place.

This class is provided free of charge, but we are powered by your generosity, so all donations are greatly appreciated. We suggest around £10/£5 (low waged) per class.

7.30pm-9pm
at Effra Space, 21 Effra Parade,
SW2 1PX
(venue has step-free access throughout)
