About the classes:
These drop-in classes aim to teach effective, meditation-based solutions to everyday problems taken from the Kadampa Buddhist tradition. Everyone is welcome – these practical meditations can be practised by anyone, whether Buddhist or not. Each class consists of guided meditations and practical advice on how to maintain a positive mind, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Classes are self-contained and you can drop in whenever you wish; there’s no need to book in advance, simply turn up and register when you arrive.
We meditate sitting on chairs and there is no physical exercise involved or any special clothing needed. These classes are suitable for everyone, including complete beginners.
