Intro to meditation and Buddhism

Every Monday at 7pm

The best place to get started at the centre is with our Monday night intro class. You can join any Monday at 7pm and no bookings are required. The class runs until 9.15pm.

Come to one class for a taste. If you like it, keep coming to the next 10 classes and you'll have completed all 11 themes of our intro to Buddhism and meditation class. You'll then have a solid grounding to undertake further courses, come along to Sangha Night (like a regulars evening), or come on retreat.

We usually spend the first half of the class introducing a core Buddhist teaching, take a break, then have meditation instruction for the second half.
