Everyone is welcome to join our classes or workshops. No previous experience is required, there is no need to wear special clothing, and most people meditate on chairs (sitting on a cushion is optional). The named buttons will take you to the venues own page. Here you will find the dates and times of each class.
The way in which we present meditation and Buddhism is accessible to everyone. We offer practical advice as well as methods and techniques that can easily be integrated into daily life. We are here to help you. We also offer some free activities, such as a meditation class during the week at 8:30am & 12:30pm, and chanted prayers (pujas).
What to expect at a class
We provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. When you arrive, a volunteer will register you before the class and direct you to the meditation space. Normally before class some announcements will be made.
Our experienced teachers are male or female, lay or ordained (Buddhist monk or nun). They will begin with an introduction, and guide a breathing meditation to help settle your mind. They will then give a teaching based on the topic of the class, with clear and logical explanations using examples and analogies.
An important characteristic of Modern Buddhism is to present Dharma teachings as personal advice that can be integrated into daily life. The intention of the teachings and guided meditations is to help you develop peaceful, clear and positive states of mind. This will help you develop your own inner wisdom, so that you can solve your daily problems and enjoy a more meaningful life.
Depending on the class, there will be either another guided meditation or a discussion with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify doubts.
All of our activities are run by volunteers, and we are a registered charity. The class and course fees help cover the costs of running the Centre.
