Weekly drop-in meditation classes offer the chance to learn how to make our mind calm and peaceful. By training in meditation we will learn to develop inner peace, giving us the ability to stay happy and positive all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.
In these meditation classes there will be two guided meditations and a talk about how to apply Buddhism and meditation to improve our daily life. Each class is self contained and seating is on normal chairs. You can join at any time, no need to book or reserve a place.

What to expect at a class
We provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. When you arrive, a volunteer will register you before the class and direct you to the meditation space. Normally before class some announcements will be made.
Our experienced teachers are male or female, lay or ordained (Buddhist monk or nun). They will begin with an introduction, and guide a breathing meditation to help settle your mind. They will then give a teaching based on the topic of the class, with clear and logical explanations using examples and analogies.
An important characteristic of Modern Buddhism is to present Dharma teachings as personal advice that can be integrated into daily life. The intention of the teachings and guided meditations is to help you develop peaceful, clear and positive states of mind. This will help you develop your own inner wisdom, so that you can solve your daily problems and enjoy a more meaningful life.
Depending on the class, there will be either another guided meditation or a discussion with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify doubts.
All of our activities are run by volunteers, and we are a registered charity. The class and course fees help cover the costs of running the Centre.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
