Mindfulness of Breathing

Samatha meditation is an effective but gentle way of training the mind to develop inner strength and freedom from turmoil, leading on to clarity and understanding. No previous experience in meditation is needed. The class's practical teachings are drawn from the Theravada Buddhist tradition, but people of all backgrounds are welcome to explore and develop mindfulness and inner peace.

Each meeting consists of a guided meditation which enables the development, step by step, of greater calm and awareness through mindfulness of breathing. After the first week, there is the opportunity for one-to-one discussion with the teacher on the application of the method.

Meditation meetings for Winter 2023/Spring 2024 are on Tuesdays 7.00-8.30pm

Evening chanting with the monks and nuns is at 6.00-7.00pm and you are welcome to attend before the Tuesday meeting.

There is no charge for the meetings but donations to the temple and the Samatha Trust are welcome.
