Day Meditation Events

Meditation EventsDay and half-day courses are a chance to find out more about meditation and modern Buddhism.

What to expect…

Each day course includes teachings, guided meditation and discussion. Some people find it helpful to make notes during the sessions so you might want to bring a notebook. Recordings of the teachings are made available for purchase for those who have attended so you can revisit them later.

Seating is on chairs so no need for any special clothing, just wear something comfortable. Meditation cushions are also available for use if you prefer.

These meditation day events are held at various locations both at Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre (Pocklington), as well as in York and other surrounding towns.

Day courses at Madhyamaka KMC include a vegetarian lunch and refreshments are also provided for break times.

Fancy staying a few extra days before or after the course? Contact us to book yourself in for a relaxing break.
