Beginners and Drop-in Meditation Sessions

The following sessions are donation based, and are open to beginners as well as experienced meditators.

“When the mind is totally present, it is relaxed, nimble, and sensitive. It feels lighter and clearer. It notices everything, but it is not distracted by anything. It is the feeling of knowing exactly where you are and what you are doing.” Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Guided meditation evenings (highly recommended for beginners and those new to Shambhala) 

Mondays and Wednesdays, 7.15-9.00 pm (class starts 7.45 pm)

Sunday Morning Monthly

Second Sunday every month, 9.30-12.30

An opportunity to engage in deep practice. These sessions will begin with morning chants to set our aspiration for the session and will close with Maitri Bhavana – a traditional practice for developing compassion for others.


All of these will provide an excellent introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation. If you feel inspired to engage in more comprehensive and ongoing training in using the practice of meditation for personal transformation, then we offer a progressively more advanced series of evening and weekend courses and retreats.
