    This weekly Mindfulness Meditation Practice allows you to meditate with others every Thursday lunchtime, either at the Library or online via Zoom. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, this drop-in class will help support you in establishing and strengthening your practice at this time.

    Each month we invite a guest teacher to facilitate the meditation practice. Come once, come every week – OR if you prefer, connect once, connect every week – for this informal gathering.

    If you want to attend online, please be sure to register so we can email you the Zoom link before each class.


    Guest Teacher for July: Ana Brandao

    Ana started practising meditation in 2004 under the guidance of Dharma teacher Master Behram Ghista. She then became interested in Vipassana meditation and met her now main meditation teacher, Ariya Baumann (nee Ariya Ñani), in 2008. Ana has attended more than 18 intensive meditation retreats in both the Tibetan and Theravada traditions, and started teaching mindfulness meditation for beginners in 2008. Her background as a scientist makes her classes practical and simple, yet with heart.


    All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.

    Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The Library offers events and classes without requesting a fee and it’s up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers to spread the Dhamma.
