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.

exploring Meditation or Buddhism, and further meditation courses and retreats.
