Beginners Meditation Classes

If you are new to meditation we highly recommend our four week ‘Learn to Meditate’ course. It costs only £50 (concessions available) and provides a thorough introduction to mindfulness and meditation.

The following classes 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

All of these will provide an excellent introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation.
