Gold Buddha hand

The word ‘Samatha’ means calm – if practised regularly, this form of meditation leads to greater calm and more clarity and awareness in daily life. It is particularly suitable for people who are looking for a way to bring some stillness and balance into busy or stressful lives.

The group is open to complete beginners and those experienced in other meditation traditions. Classes include group meditation sessions and explanations of Mindfulness and the Buddha’s teachings. There is also the opportunity for group and individual discussion with a teacher.

There is no charge for the class but a contribution towards room hire and expenses is requested.

You are welcome to join the next beginner's class at any time, which run through to July 2016 with a two week break at Xmas and another at Easter.

The meetings start every Wednesday at 7:30pm at
