Meditation

Events

As well as our drop-in classes and courses, we offer some events at which you can learn about and practise meditation. If you are interested in Buddhism as well as meditation, you can find courses relating to both on our Buddhism page.

For regular friends, we run some classes for those who are experienced in meditation. You can find out details in the Sangha section of the site.
