Meditation and Mindfulness - Introductory Courses

Meditation Overview   |    Level II Courses and Retreats   |   Meditation Retreats

We offer a wide variety of ways to learn meditation: evening or daytime courses, Saturday morning drop-in classes, and even weekend retreats. We hope that one of these options will work for you.

We teach two meditation practices: the mindfulness of breathing and the metta bhavana (the development of loving-kindness). When practised regularly, these meditations lead to calm, concentrated and positive states of mind. [more information about meditation in general]

Listed below are the different courses and classes currently offered for beginners or even people that simply want a refresher course in meditation. After you've learned to meditate through one of our introductory classes, you are welcome to attend the other classes at our centre. We offer opportunities to meditate during the week, regular classes exploring Buddhism, and further meditation courses and retreats. [more information on further meditation courses]

Meditation Sampler: casual drop-in led meditation for beginners or refreshers

If you want to get a taste of meditation right away, these classes are held every Tuesday and Saturday throughout the year. Although some people attend regularly each week, these classes are designed for people who have no previous experience of meditation. Please feel free to just drop-in, when you can.
Cost: By donation - no advance booking required.
