When meeting as a sangha we can be a reminder to each other to live mindfully, aware of our thoughts, speech and actions. To help with practising mindfulness and meditation in your own time, between meetings, we also maintain an active 'virtual' sangha on Facebook where you will find ideas and inspiration, help and support.

Resources to inspire you on your mindful journey:

Reading list inspired by our Sangha discussions:

  • The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Naht Hanh. The 1975 classic that inspired a generation. In this beautiful and lucid guide, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offers gentle anecdotes and practical exercise as a means of learning the skills of mindfulness.

  • In Praise of Slow by Carl Honore, described by Will Hutton in The Guardian as an “entertaining…hymn to the pleasure of allowing everything its proper time…well executed and persuasive.”

  • Happiness by Matthieu Ricard. A molecular biologist turned Buddhist monk, described by scientists as "the happiest man alive," demonstrates how to develop the inner conditions for true happiness.

  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig. It's not very factual on Zen or motorcycles, says the author. But it's perhaps the most widely read book on Philosophy ever written, and as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.
