An Introduction to Buddhist Meditation
Check our What’s On page for the latest on our upcoming events.
Wednesdays 5:45 – 7pm (arrive from 5:30pm) | 162 Gloucester Road, BS7 8NT
In person only – with Alice and Bhadra
Our beginners classes are a great way to sample meditation for the first time or to get refreshing support and clarity to help you set up a regular practice.
Full instructions will be given including how to sit comfortably in a chair or on cushions on the floor. We’ll introduce our meditation practices, one each week – either the Mindfulness of Breathing which develops calm, focus and wholeheartedness, or a Loving-Kindness (Metta Bhavana) meditation which develops emotional strength. Consistently working with the same practice over time can create depth.
There is plenty of time for questions and discussion.
No need to book! Just turn up on the day. Arrive from 5:30pm for a 5:45pm start.
There is no set charge for this class – we ask you to give what you can so that we can teach meditation to the next person through the door.
Why meditate? Some of our meditators share their experience here
You don’t need any special clothes for meditation, just wear comfortable trousers or a loose skirt so you can bend your knees.
Do I need any previous experience of meditation?
No, these sessions are suitable for complete beginners and anyone wanting to refresh their practice. See the videos below for tips on how to sit and your posture.
7:30pm - 9:30pm
