Here are some common questions that people ask about our meditation classes. If you have any other questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you in anyway.

A: We run many meditation classes & courses. Drop-in Classes take place Mon to Thurs, Sat & Sun, in the morning, afternoon and evening. Check our monthly calendar. Also we run courses over the weekend, see here: Weekend classes

A: No. We try to present Buddha’s teachings in a way that is accessible to everyone.

A: No. Everyone is welcome, including beginners.

A: Either is fine; it really depends on your own circumstances and preference. Weekly classes are shorter and the groups are smaller, whereas weekend events attract larger audiences and take place over a whole day or more.

A: All our classes are designed to be simple yet profound, so that every class provides something for everyone.

A: The classes begin with a relaxation meditation. Then there will be a talk covering the basics of meditation and mindfulness techniques, emphasizing how these can be applied to our daily life. Finally, there is a second meditation based on the talk, and to conclude there is a time for questions-and-answers and discussion with light refreshments and an opportunity to get to know people informally. Meditation CD’s and Buddhist’s books will be on sale for further reading.

A: No. But you can ask questions to the teachers at the end of the class if you want to.

A: No. The courses focus on meditation alone.

A: Nothing in particular. However, some people find it useful to take notes, so you can bring a notepad and pen.

 A: There are no special requirements, but comfortable clothing is generally best.

A: No. Each class is self-contained. You can drop in whenever you can, and start whenever you like.
