Learn to meditate

Group of meditators

We offer a range of beginners meditation instruction:

All options teach our two main meditation practices: mindfulness of breathing and loving-kindness (metta bhavana). Together these help cultivate clarity, focus and compassion.

The 10-week introductory evening programme will give you the foundation you need to establish your own practice, and attend any of our other classes and retreats with confidence. You can join at any point during the programme - just come along at 7pm on a Monday night. This class includes instruction in both meditation and the basics of Buddhism (of which meditation is an essential element). This is our recommended starting point for newcomers with an interest in Buddhism and meditation.

Weekend and daytime classes simply teach our two main meditation practices.

Everything is provided at our courses to support your learning, all you need to do is come along in casual, comfortable clothes.
