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.

Introduction to med­it­a­tion — six week course

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 to keep your feet warm as we take our shoes off in the med­it­a­tion halls.
