Evening Meditation Classes

Wednesday 7.30pm - 9.30pm £7.00 / £5.00 concession


This class is is suitable for those who are new to meditation and for those familiar with our two basic practices, the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana. Different teachers ensure a variety of approaches. We'll have a tea break and ample opportunity to ask questions and advice about Meditation and Buddhism.

Sangha Morning Class

Saturday 10.30am to 1.00pm £7.50 / £5.00 concession


Sangha mornings are occasions when regular practitioners of our centre and community come together to sit at the feet of the Buddha, explore his Dharma and endeavour to create Sangha. Saturday mornings commence with salutation of the shrine and the chanting of the refuges and precepts before engaging in meditation practice. There will be the opportunity to take part in a more introductory, led meditation in our downstairs shrine room, therefore newcomers are still welcome to attend.


Each week, there will be talks and discussions on a range of themes which explore the essence of the centre's Threefold Vision; The Radical, The Sangha and The Mythical. For more information on the Threefold Vision click here. 




If you'd like to keep up to date on what topics we'll be covering on our Sangha Mornings, you can sign up for our mailing list and we'll send you updates and a monthly newsletter. Sign up here
