What to Expect at a Class

Each class begins with guided breathing meditation, to help settle the mind, let go of distractions and cultivate inner peace. The Teacher then gives a practical teaching which focuses on how we can integrate Buddha’s timeless wisdom into our busy daily lives. The class finishes with a concluding meditation to help us take the teaching to heart. Afterwards, for those who wish, there is a chance to talk to the teacher and other students informally.

The classes teach specific Buddhist methods for developing inner peace and solving our human problems. Although these teachings are Buddhist in nature, they are completely accessible to everybody regardless of background or belief, and there is no need to be a Buddhist to experience the wonderful benefits of meditation.

Although there is generally a natural progression from one class to the next, each class is self-contained. Even if a series has started, please feel very welcome to drop in and check us out. Drop-ins and walk-in registration are always welcome.
