Here for a class or event?
Show your ticket to the person receiving you, and join the class. If you’re early, have a cup of tea and relax. If you’re late, please join the class anyway (you’ve made it here, we’d rather you come in!)
Just want to drop by and check us out or visit our shop?
We welcome visitors between the hours of 12.00 and 17.00 Monday to Friday. We invite you to have a cup of tea and a chat, have a look at our program of events and courses and let us answer any questions we can. You can drop in if you are walking by or contact us if you wish to arrange a time.
We have a small bookshop with books related to Buddhist science of mind, psychology and philosophy, meditation, neuroscience and different topics related to mind training. We also have various meditation items from Nepal and we have our own range of meditation cushions.
How to get here?

What do I wear?
Set your feet free! In order to create a peaceful quiet and mindful atmosphere, a place to stop and breath, unwind and change our focus from the outside busy world to the internal awareness of our minds and bodies, we all take our shoes off when we enter the building. There are slippers provided, or bring your own if you wish. If you need to wear shoes for medical reasons it is perfectly ok to keep them on.
For our mindfulness and other mind training courses, we simply ask you to dress in a way you feel comfortable to meditate in. We are a casual environment and want you to feel comfortable, but we request that you respect others by avoiding overly revealing attire.
When we have Buddhist monks and nuns teaching, out of respect for the monks and nuns, we ask you to abide by the ‘neck-to-knee’ principle. This means in summer being mindful not to wear shorts, and avoiding strappy singlets. No sleeves is fine, but try to have the shoulders covered. If in doubt, bring a light sarong or scarf. We have light blankets to put around your shoulders if you find the air-conditioning a bit chilly, and you can also use these to cover your knees for modesty purposes.
