Introductory Meditation

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.

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.

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.

We run our classes on donations, so that everyone can access them regardless of income. To help support us and keep this approach alive please do give what you can.
