Whether you’re looking to find a little peace, make better choices, enrich your life or to find a meaningful spiritual path, you’ll find something here for you. Our six week introductory courses are the best way to try some Buddhist tools for living for yourself, or you can get a taste of Buddhist meditation at one of our drop-in sessions on a Thursday or Friday lunchtime or one Saturday morning a month.
Some people find their way into meditation via Yoga or other body based practices. We offer Body Dharma classes that make supportive links between bodywork, particularly Yoga and our meditation teaching. Suitable for both complete beginners and those looking to find ways to integrate these two areas of practice.
We’re keen to develop a culture of generosity so there is no charge for these sessions, but we’ll invite you to give what you can if you can afford to. We hope you’ll be able to contribute to the running costs of the centre so other people can benefit from your generosity.
