Learn meditation


When we meditate we learn to be aware in the present moment and to develop positive feelings. Over time, mindfulness meditation can bring about a gentle but radical transformation

We have a number of ways you can learn meditation. The same mediation practices are also taught in our introductory Buddhism courses.

Course content

Our courses cover the essential aspects of Buddhist meditation

  • Posture – how to be comfortable but alert
  • Mindfulness
  • Meditating with the breath
  • Meditation to develop positivity
  • Working with difficulties in meditation
  • The connection between body and mind
  • How meditation can help in daily life


Our courses are taught by ordained members of the Triratna Buddhist Order and by those training for ordination. They are well-trained and experienced practitioners, who teach in a friendly, informal way and communicate from their own experience.

Breathworks courses use the principles of mindfulness and meditation to help people learn to live well with physical pain, stress and other difficulties.

What to bring?

You don't need to bring anything apart from yourself or wear anything special, but you might want some socks as we take our shoes off in the meditation halls.
