The Meditation House - 1 Gatcombe, Great Holm, Milton Keynes, MK8 9EA
The House offers courses on the development of mindfulness and meditation which are open to all. The method we teach uses the breath and has been practised in a tradition stretching back over 2,500 years. It helps to develop calm and well-being.
There is no charge for the classes, though donations towards the running costs and upkeep of the house are very welcome.
Please note, we are taking a summer break for the beginners classes. Two new six month courses for beginners will begin on Tuesday 15th October and Wednesday 16th of October , respectively. The classes start at 7.30 pm.
The formal part of a class, with instruction, a group practice and a talk, lasts up to 50 minutes. If you are coming to a class for the first time, it is helpful to arrive at around 7.15 pm if possible, so that the person taking the class can give you an initial instruction for the group practice.
The way we teach
The classes consist of a guided group meditation practice followed by a talk about various aspects of the practice. People can sit on the floor with a cushion or on a chair. Then there follows an opportunity for a one to one meeting with the teacher to discuss how the practice is developing for you. These reports, as they are called, will take about five minutes per person and usually run after the formal part of the class has finished.
Please note, whilst the mindfulness practice can benefit a wide range of people, it is not a treatment for mental health difficulties. If you are unsure whether it is suitable for you, by all means get in touch and we can discuss it.
Who are we?
The Meditation House is owned and run by the Samatha Trust, a UK charity established to foster the practice of calm and insight meditation.
