What to expect…

Each 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 often 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 events are held at various locations including Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre (Pocklington), as well as York and other surrounding towns.

An optional light-lunch can be booked alongside half-day courses at Madhyamaka KMC.
