Open House Talk: What's the point?


December 3 / 7:30 PM - December 3 / 9:30 PM


In this Open House Talk, Jim O'Neill will lead an examination into the mind of doubt, lack of confidence and depression; a set of common obstacles to enjoying one's life as well as following a spiritual path.


These Open House Talks are a great introduction to meditation and the Shambhala Buddhist teachings. The evening will include meditation practice and a talk by one of our senior teachers. It is an opportunity to connect with other people interested in meditation.


Jim O'Neill is a long-term student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and has been appointed by the Sakyong as a 'shastri', or senior teacher. He also works full time as a psychoanalyst. 


Open House Talks will usually take place on the first Monday of the month. Please look out for further announcements on forthcoming Open House Talks in the new year.  


There are no pre-registrations for Open House Talks. Please come along on the evening. All welcome.

Timings: 7:30 for an 8pm start.

Cost: Suggested donation £4-£5.
