Drop in and learn to meditate

As of Saturday 7 January 2017, you can just drop in to the Buddhist centre once a month to learn to meditate. The follow-up dates are 11 February, 11 March, 15 April and 13 May. There's no need to book and you can come whenever you want. Donations welcome.
 





Safeguarding Policies

We take the safety and well-being of all people coming along to the Buddhist Centre very seriously - the first ethical precept for Buddhists is to cultivate loving-kindness (or metta in Pali), and to avoid harming living beings. We have policies on Child Protection and Adults with Safeguarding Needs, and Codes of Conduct for people on the Teaching Team - copies are available in the Centre, or contact Saravantu@gmail.com.

Many, many thanks to Annette, one of our volunteers, who has put lots of energy and love into the implementation of these policies, including organising and delivering awareness-raising sessions for our Teaching Team and others in the Shrewsbury Sangha.
