After you have learnt the basic techniques of meditation, and have started a regular practice, there are several ways we can help you deepen your experience
Introduction to Buddhism courses
If you haven’t already done so, we would recommend you learn more about why meditation is such a central part of Buddhist practice. These courses also introduce us to the importance of skillful action and ethical behaviour as a way of making the mind clearer, less distracted and more positive. This can have a big impact on our ability to meditate
- Details of introductory Buddhism courses
A meditation club meets on the third Saturday morning of the month, for those with six months practice.
Weekend meditation events
Local and visiting teachers lead workshops at weekends from time to time, to help deepen practice and answer the questions that arise from our practice. See events list
Use the meditation halls
You can always drop in and meditate here during the week, alone or with others doing the same. One of the rooms is usually available, although it’s safest to check first with reception.
We invite you to make a donation.
