We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Development of Loving Kindness (Mettā Bhāvanā), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world. Each week we alternate between the two practices.
We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
What time should I get there?
We start fairly promptly 12:30pm. You’re welcome to arrive any time from 12:15pm, 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.
Do I need to book?
No – just turn up!
Do I need to be a Buddhist?
The class is especially suited for people who are completely new to meditation and Buddhism, and suitable for everyone, regardless of your religious beliefs.
What should I wear?
There are no special requirements, just whatever is comfortable to sit in.
How much does the class cost?
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.
