New Year - Escape into reality, away from the demands of the festive season, and explore your mind in the company of likeminded people. We'll use the imagery, symbolism and wisdom of the Five Buddha Mandala, or the Meditating Buddhas, to inspire our meditation. Everyone who practices the metta bhavana and mindfulness of breathing is welcome.

Intro Meditation - Learn to meditate in supportive retreat conditions. For absolute beginners and those wanting to brush up.
