About Thursday Evenings


Our open meditation group meets on Thursdays from 6 pm till 8 pm at Erin Hall, Erin Road, Rondebosch. Everyone is welcome. A voluntary donation of R30 is requested for attendance. Meditation instruction is also available for anyone who would like it -- just arrive at about 5:45 instead.


The typical format is half an hour of meditation, followed by a teaching, a discussion in large or small groups, and then tea and biscuits.
