We run a regular programme of introductory classes for people who are new to Buddhism and meditation as practised in our tradition. Because meditation is one part of an overall package in Buddhism, most of our classes for newcomers are an introduction to Meditation and Buddhism, rather than being just about meditation alone. Here’s what’s coming up:
Six Week Course Introducing Buddhism and Meditation
This course explores basic Buddhist tools for living well: ethics, meditation and wisdom. It includes an introduction to the mindfulness of breathing and development of loving kindness meditation practices.
The course is free, but donations are welcome from those who can afford them. We’d suggest £45 but any amount is welcome.
Each Weds from 1st Oct 7:30-10pm
Each Sat from 8th November 10:30am-1pm
A day introducing basic Buddhist principles and meditations. These events are free but donations are welcome from those who can afford them. We’d suggest £25 but any amount is welcome.
Next Intro Day:
Sunday 21st September 10am—5pm
Sign Language available on request: BSL interpreter NRCPD registered T.I.
One hour sessions including led body awareness and mindfulness of breathing or development of loving kindness meditation. Ideal for newcomers or anyone looking for a quieter, stiller way to spend their lunch hour. Doors open from 12.30am, and the class starts promptly at 1pm, so if you can, come a little early, giving yourself a chance to ‘arrive’
Free; suggested donation £5
