Classes for regular meditators

Friends Night Regular Practice Evening – both in person (booking required) and online

This class is currently held on Friday evenings 7.00pm (prompt) – 9.15 pm, at the Meanwood Institute, LS6 4LD (booking required) and online.

Open to everyone who is familiar with the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana meditations, this class offers a chance to meditate with others, receive ideas and share ways of deepening our understanding and practice of Buddhism and meditation. Please note: anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (both in person and online).

Online option: Please sign up to our newsletter to receive information about how to join us online. The online link will open from 6.45pm for a 7pm start.

In person option at Meanwood Institute, Green Rd, LS6 4LD: Please book a place by emailing  with Friday Sangha Night in the subject line. If you want to come regularly, please tell us of any Fridays when you can’t come, so a space is available for somebody else.  Alternatively, if you can only come on specific weeks, let us know and we will try to accommodate you.  We will email you back confirming when you have a place.  Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a place every week, so if you miss out on a place one week you will be prioritised one for the following week.

Notwithstanding the Government having relaxed COVID restrictions, there remains risk from COVID-19 to participants and those who may come into contact with them.  As an expression of the First Precept we undertake, we will conduct Sangha Nights at the Meanwood Institute in a way that mitigates risk of harm to participants and others.  This will include limiting numbers and keeping social distancing within the Hall.  Please read this pdf document of our Covid-19 precautions and note that we ask everyone coming to have taken a lateral flow test before they set off and to have received a negative result.
