Meditation and Mindfulness

In the Buddhist tradition of “Samatha” -developing calm, clarity & inner strength.

The word ‘Samatha’ means calm - if practised regularly, this form of 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. It is particularly suitable for people who are looking for a way to bring some stillness and balance into busy or stressful lives.

The Class

The Beginners' class is on a Wednesday night at 7:30 pm.

This class is suitable for complete beginners, meditators from other traditions or anyone just curious about meditation. 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.

There is no charge for teaching, a donation of £5.00 per person per evening is suggested to aid towards the cost of the room hire.
