This class introduces you to a traditional form of Buddhist meditation called "Samatha”. Samatha is a technique of breathing mindfulness, leading to greater calm and happiness, and more clarity and awareness in daily life.Buddhist teachings are used to help explain the meditation practice, but you do not need to be a Buddhist to benefit.

All are welcome, whether you are new to, or have previous experience of meditation.

There is no charge for the teaching, but we do ask everyone to make a contribution of £3.00 to £4.00 each towards the cost of running the class, including room hire.

If you would like to know more, or are interested in coming along to the class, please contact  Sarah on the telephone number or email above.

Please note: Classes do not take place during the school holiday periods of Christmas, Easter and summer.
