Regular teaching


Announcement: 27th March 2020 

Zoomi Bhikkhuni: Anukampa's Live Online Dhamma Sessions (led by Ven Canda Bhikkhuni, via Zoom)


In the beautiful Karaniya Metta Sutta (on loving kindness, Sn 1.8), the quality of protecting all beings from harm without exception ~ to the extent that a mother would protect her only child ~ is greatly emphasised.


Staying at home to halt the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is a radical act of loving kindness. The extra solitude we are experiencing also provides an ideal opportunity to develop our meditation practice, or even begin a regular practice for those who don't yet have one.


In order to support you in this, Ven Canda will be offering several regular online meditation groups via the video app., Zoom, at least until end of May.


Just download Zoom on your computer, get your cushion, or relax into a comfortable armchair, (with your trusty computer!) then join a session by clicking on the links to the events of your choice, below:
