Buddhist Meditation Classes In Sunderland 2013-2014

Learn a gentle way to clam and inner strength through mindfulness of breathing.

The Sunderland group meets on Thursdays 5.15 pm to around 7.00pm, (with breaks over Christmas and Easter periods and continuing to the end of June), starting on September 26th. Please note that people may not join after Easter.

Each class consists of a talk, and perhaps a discussion, then a guided meditation, which teaches step by step way of developing greater calm, inner strength and awareness through giving attention to the breath. No previous experience in meditation is needed. After the first week, there is the opportunity for one to one discussion with the teacher on the application of the method. While it is preferable to attend from the first class, you can also join later too.

No need to book - just turn up to the class and give it a go.

We meet in room 312, top floor of the Priestman Building of the University of Sunderland, which is on New Durham Road and Green Terrace, near the bottom of Chester Road and the University Metro station. There is wheelchair access and a lift in the building. 

In 2013-14, the classes run September 26 to December 12, January 9 to  April 3, May 1  to  June 26.  Please note that people may not join after Easter.

There is no charge for the class.

There is another class nearby in Durham City, which meets on Wednesdays at 7.30pm.
