Learn to Meditate | Sat 10am

Online, Saturdays 10 – 11am  No class in August

Our online 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 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.

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.

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.
