Meetings and Talks

We hold regular meetings, typically every six weeks, at which policies are set and events are planned. Check the What's On menu link to see when the next meeting is. Prospective members are welcome to attend. If you wish to attend a meeting in order to meet the group, or just to see what we do, please use the contact address on the main page to let us know in advance. Some meetings may include an informational talk, slideshow or presentation by a visiting spokesperson.

Thubten Samdup addresses one of our best-attended recent meetings.


" It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act. There are two aspects to action. One is to overcome the distortions and afflictions of your own mind, that is, in terms of calming and eventually dispelling anger. This is action out of compassion. The other is more social, more public. When something needs to be done in the world to rectify the wrongs, if one is really concerned with benefitting others, one needs to be engaged, involved." H.H. The Dalai Lama
