Our talks, workshops and events are designed to inspire you and provide opportunities for you to enjoy your higher state of consciousness.
Open to Everyone
We invite a thought-provoking guest speaker, artist or musician from a different discipline in to BMC to share their work and the way they see the world. The format varies according to the guest, but usually involves questions and encourages discussion.
Album Listening Night
Listening to an album as it was intended to be heard by the artist — with our full attention, and without distraction, from start to finish. This event is a true sound journey, and an introspective experience that allows us to hear music in an entirely new way.
We start with a meditation before moving straight into listening to an album the whole way through. No talking, no phones! BMC has a state-of-the-art Klipschorn sound system so be prepared to be fully drawn into the music.
Everyone loves a Friday night in with a good film. The only selection criteria for ours, is that the film expands our thinking or brings us a fresh perspective. Film Night includes freshly made popcorn and the opportunity to hang back after for a chat.
Vedic Fundamentals with Matt Ringrose
Many of the fundamental ideas we have about the way life works are simply wrong. And yet we base our lives on them. The ancient Vedic texts call this tendency ‘the mistaken intellect’ and contains many lessons to help us correct the intellect and reduce our suffering and the suffering of others.
Vedic Fundamentals takes some of the key lessons from the Veda and explores them in a simple, practical way so that you can apply them in your own life.
This six part series includes;
1. How to Follow Charm
2. Creation, Maintenance and Destruction – the forces that underlie all of life
4. Understanding Karma
5. The Seven States of Consciousness
6. Dharma (Finding your Life’s Purpose)
A monthly get together where we share our perspectives on a specific book and explore what it is trying to reveal to us. The intention is to cover a broad range of styles including classic Vedic texts, spiritual works and self-help books, as well as fiction and biographies. The book of the month will be communicated in our timetable.
