Why meditate? Some of our community share their experience
These drop-in 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 instruction will be given. 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 positivity and connectedness.
There is also time for questions and discussion.
What do I need to do to prepare?
Find somewhere quiet to sit and let anyone else in your household know that you are going to meditate so you would prefer not to be disturbed. You might want to get ready a comfortable seat, or meditation cushions or a meditation stool. We will give advice on sitting posture as part of the meditation session.
Do I need any previous experience of meditation?
No, these sessions are suitable for complete beginners as well as those looking to refresh their practice.
Do bring a mask with you for when walking around the building (not whilst sitting and socially distanced), and we may request mask wearing for the benefit of a clinically vulnerable person. Please do read our covid guidelines before attending in person.
If you are clinically vulnerable then contact the class leader to discuss your needs prior to the event.
