Buddhist Meditation Classes In Great Malvern
A Samatha meditation class is held fortnightly at The Friends' Meeting House, Orchard Road, Great Malvern, on the second, fourth and (sometimes) fifth Mondays of each month. Beginners come at 7.00pm. They learn one or more stages of the structured Samatha meditation practice, with opportunity for questions and discussion with the teacher, and then join with more experienced meditators for a group meditation practice, in which everyone can join.
This is followed by refreshments and a short talk on some aspect of Buddhist teachings.
Meetings in Autumn 2013 start for beginners on Monday September 23rd. Subsequent meetings will be on October 14th and 28th, November 11th and 25th, and December 9th.
Newcomers to this tradition are welcome at any time. All meditators have the opportunity to talk about their individual practice with the teacher on a one-to-one basis as required.
There's no need to register for the class - just turn up! The costs of the class are met by donations - there's no fixed fee: most people leave £3, or more if they can afford it.

The Friends' Meeting House on Orchard Road is a short walk from Priory Park, or can be reached by car from Malvern town centre via Abbey Road, forking left onto Priory Road. Orchard Road is then on the left, opposite College Road.
As we sit for practice on a hard wooden floor, you should bring a yoga mat, blanket or other soft surface to sit on. There are some cushions in the Meeting House.
