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 teaching the various stages of the meditation practice, group meditation sessions and explanations of Mindfulness and the Buddha’s teachings. There is also the opportunity for group and individual private discussion with a teacher.

We do not charge for the classes / teachings, but request a donation/contribution towards the cost of room hire from the Council.

You are welcome to join the next Beginner's Group which will start on the 6th September 2017 and run through until July 2018, with breaks around school holidays.

Unfortunatly, due to the large number of people joining the group this September, I have had to close inviting new members until the end of 2017. Please contact me later in the year to check if I will be able to accept new members in January 2018.

The meetings start every Wednesday from 7.15 / 7:30pm through to about 9:45pm at;-

Kimberly Street Social/Community Hall,
