Learning Meditation

Learn to Meditate Courses

This is the most thorough way to learn meditation. The course consists of two 6 week modules, held every Monday evening:
Learn to Meditate: Part 1 is suitable for complete newcomers, and teaches two meditations, the mindfulness of breathing and the 'Metta Bhavana' or cultivation of loving kindness. Learn to Meditate: Part 2 is taken after Part 1 as a way to deepen and expand your practice and to support you in your ongoing practice of meditation.

How to Meditate Days

How to Meditate days are a great option if you cannot make an evening course. They provide a full introduction to the two meditation practices we teach - the mindfulness of breathing and the 'Metta Bhavana' or cultivation of loving kindness - as well as guidance on posture and a set of handouts for home use.

Drop-in classes

Our Meditation Drop-in classes run throughout the year, and are a great way to have a taste of meditation. Two meditations are taught on alternate weeks. We also run a Meditation and Buddhism Evening which includes a presentation and discussion on a Buddhist topic in the second half.

There is no need to book for any of our Drop-in classes.
