Supporting teachers in the insight meditation tradition

Following the tradition established by the Buddha, teachings are freely offered in a spirit of dana or generosity. The act of giving freely and heartfully brings a sense of gladness and trust, a firm foundation for practice. There is no charge for attending the Monday evenings, but you are encouraged to offer a donation according to your means to support the livelihood of your teacher.

Room hire for this meeting is sponsored by Oxford Insight Meditation.
