Samatha is the Buddhist word that translates as the cultivation of calm

The Samatha Trust has been offering teaching in Buddhist meditation in the UK and beyond since the 1970s.  The Samatha meditation develops a state of calm and stillness in both the mind and body.  

Although it is best to learn Samatha Meditation with a group meeting together face-to-face, we do offer opportunities for people to learn online.

Experienced meditation teachers will be giving daily, weekly or weekend classes tailored to individual needs.

We hope to give as many people as possible the opportunity to learn meditation in whatever circumstances.

If you are interested in learning Samatha Meditation online there are currently two options:

1 - A 30-week website-based course, which runs from early October to June, though while it is preferable to start then, it is also possible to join later. With written and audio material, it leads you through the stages of Samatha and introduces aspects of theory that are helpful in guiding the practice. Also includes weekly one-to-one feedback on your practice: https://www.samatha.org/what-we-offer/classes/online-course-october-2021-june-2022  No need to be online at any specific time during the week, other than for the one-to-one discussion, though there is the option of also being in a weekly Zoom class that runs Thursdays at 7.30pm.  To find out more, including how to register for the course, contact the course leader, Peter Harvey: b.peter.harvey@gmail.com
