Meditation

Courses

If you want to get a thorough, experiential understanding of meditation, a course is probably the best way to do it.  With the support of an experienced teacher and a small, friendly group over several weeks, you can build on what you learn week by week and integrate it into your daily life, so by the end of the course you’re well placed to keep exploring meditation on your own, in drop-in classes or on a retreat. We offer regular Introduction to Meditation courses, and also ‘Going Deeper’ courses for those with some experience of meditation, which run over 4-6 weekly meetings.  Our Meditation Days cover similar ground to the Introduction to Meditation courses but in a different format.
