Newcomers’ Classes

Learning about Meditation and Buddhism

Tuesday Evening
Starts at 7.00 p.m. Finishes 9.15 p.m.


New program commences Tues 12th Sept and runs for eight weeks until Tues 31st October: We will be looking at meditation  through following the breath and looking at how to cultivate loving-kindness to ourselves and other people through a meditation practice called the Metta Bhavana.

This is a drop in event and no previous experience of Buddhist meditation is required. If you have already learnt to meditate this is also an opportunity to deepen and build a regular practice and connect with other people.
Each evening will consist of a guided meditation and an introduction and exploration of the Buddha’s teachings and their relevance to our lives.
You are welcome to attend whenever you can, for as many weeks or months as you like. This is a rolling programme so if you miss some weeks you will be able to catch up on what was covered at another time.

Cost: These classes are run on a drop-in basis and there is no charge. However the centre relies on the generosity of the people who use it. If you can, please help us to make mindfulness, meditation and Buddhism available to everyone by putting a donation in the dana bowl or by taking out a regular standing order to support the centre.

Booking: No need to book – just turn up on the evening by 7.00 pm

There will be a further programme of classes beginning Saturday mornings on 28th October. For more information please subscribe to our newsletter.
