A Drop In Class

Reflective Film Night

A Drop In Social evening - all welcome.

Third Sunday of Every Month 6pm to 9:00pm approx.

Everyone and anyone is welcome and it is completely free.  While the movies will have an occasional Buddhist theme, they will mostly be "art house" movies - that inspire us to reflect on the meaning of life -  movies that have largely bypassed the major cinemas. 

To inspire a "reflective" atmosphere the movie will be preceded by a short optional meditation session and there will be time for discussion at the end of the movie.
