Meditation Online Drop-In
Introduction to Buddhist meditation. Suitable for complete beginners.
Every Thursday lunchtime via Zoom
We offer our Wednesday night class for young people to come together to meet like-minded others who are interested in learning and practising meditation, exploring ethics, and hearing and discussing the teachings of the Buddha in a safe and welcoming space.
You don’t need to be a Buddhist, or to have previous experience of meditation; just come along with an open mind and a willingness to be with others who are reflecting on their journey through life.
Each evening begins with a brief breathing space relaxation, and usually includes a short talk on meditation or an aspect of Buddhist teachings, an opportunity for discussion in small groups, a tea break, and meditation in our shrine room.
Everyone of all backgrounds, cultures, and traditions is welcome.
Please arrive for a 7pm start.

We start fairly promptly at 7pm. You’re welcome to arrive any time from 6:45pm, but please try to not arrive before then as the team may still be setting up. If you arrive late, feel free to slip in quietly and place your coat and shoes in the cloakroom on the left.
No – just turn up!
The class is especially suited for people who are completely new to meditation and Buddhism, and suitable for everyone, regardless of your religious beliefs.
There are no special requirements, just whatever is comfortable to sit in.
We don’t charge for our classes, we simply ask that those who are able to do so make a donation to the centre to help us cover our running costs.
The suggested amount, is $5 to $15. Everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.
We can take donations by card or cash.
The evening is provided for young people, to be comfortable to interact and discuss their current experience. If you're outside this age range, Tuesday nights will suit you better, where there is a wide range of people, ages and experience.
We're upstairs at 6-8 Broomhedge St, just off Adelaide Rd. There is plenty of parking outside the centre (you can ignore the private parking signs as the other tenants only use the spaces during work hours).
