Weekly drop-in meditation classes – suitable for everyone. The classes are designed to give you the means to gain more inner peace and happiness in your daily life.

  • Each class consists of guided meditations, a talk and discussion.
  • Each class lasts approximately one hour and is followed by refreshments.
  • Each class is self-contained, though you are welcome to attend the whole course.

These meditation classes are suitable for everyone. They are taught by our Resident Teacher Gen Gakyi and give a practical introduction to meditation and include topics such as the benefits of meditation, mindfulness, good posture, types of meditation, and how to start a daily meditation practice. Advice is also given on how to remain peaceful in daily life by applying the meditation techniques explained in these classes. Please feel free to drop in on a class-by-class basis. See below for dates.

No special clothing is required with chairs and cushions provided for your comfort. Come along to any session, pre-booking is not required.

You are welcome to join us for a light lunch after the class (£2).

Teacher: Gen Gakyi is an English Buddhist nun with over 20 year experience of teaching meditation.
