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

We’re Sorry To Say
Meditation Classes
And Meetings
Are Temporarily Suspended

Following the latest government advice on the Coronavirus we felt it best to suspend group meetings and courses planned for the next few months.

Our priorities are to protect those who are particularly vulnerable and to slow down infection processes for the benefit of ourselves and others.

If you have a regular class at the centre your teacher will be in touch to arrange suitable ways to develop the meditation practice with your group online.

Please contact your teacher directly if you have any questions or concerns. helen.brennan1@ntlworld.com                                                                 

Weekly meetings every Wednesday from 7:30pm through to 9:00/9:30pm

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.

Please bring along one or two cushions if you are comfortable sitting on the floor. Wear comfortable and loose fitting clothing. If you would rather sit on a chair that is completely fine.
