Our Meditation Classes

The drop in meditation classes at the Centre and nearby branches are open to everyone. Classes include step-by-step guided meditations, talks and informal discussions. These group classes will allow you to relax, enjoy some meditation, and return home feeling refreshed and inspired.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN A CLASS

Our meditation classes are for anyone who is interested in learning how to meditate, regardless of background or beliefs. They are designed to give a broad introduction to Buddhist meditation, teachings, and practice.  Every class includes a chance to practise meditation. No prior experience, special equipment or special clothes are necessary – just come as you are.

  • Guided Breathing Meditation Every class begins with a fifteen -minute guided breathing meditation.
  • Teaching The meditation is followed by a talk from Buddha’s teachings. These practical talks help us to solve our daily problems and find peace, happiness and, if we wish, a deeper purpose in our busy lives.

  • Second Guided Meditation The teaching is followed by a guided meditation based on the class teaching in order to develop wisdom through deeper contemplation and meditation.

  • Question and Answer There is an opportunity to discuss the talk and meditation with others, and to ask questions. Don’t worry – there’s no expectation to talk if you don’t want to!

  • Advice on Daily Practice The class finishes with practical advice on how we can put the teaching into practice in our daily life through the practice of mindfulness.
