Our voluntary receptionists run the shop and they are also Buddhist practitioners.
Some of them are beginners and some have been practicing for longer, but they will be happy to try to help you with any spritual questions if they can and to show you Dharma books and other materials available in our Buddhist Tharpa Shop.
You are very welcome to stay for a cup of tea or coffee after a meditation class to have a chance to get to know other people in the community. There is no charge for this.
Sometimes we arrange to get together as a community for a countryside walk or a meal out. These events are announceed within our classes.
If you would like to volunteer to help the community please fill in one of our volunteering forms and let the person on reception or your class assistant know.
