Drop-In Meditation

Drop-In Meditation

The first and third Wednesdays of each month 6:50pm – 8:45pm

The evening takes place in two halves. Usually in the first half, we explore an aspect of Buddhism with an opportunity for discussion. After a short break, we will introduce one of two Buddhist meditations.


Dharma is the name for the teachings of the Buddha. We introduce Dharma in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world. Usually the format is a short presentation, followed by breaking into smaller groups for discussion.


We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Mettā Bhāvanā (“development of loving kindness”), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world. Each session we alternate between the two practices.

We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book?

No, just turn up!

What time should I aim to arrive?

We start fairly promptly at 7pm, so it's best to aim to arrive at 6:50pm.

Do I need to be a Buddhist?

No - the class is suitable for everyone, especially those who are completely new to meditation and Buddhism.

What should I wear?

There are no special requirements, just make sure you'll be comfortable to sit for the length of the meditation.

How much does the class cost?

We don't charge a fixed price for our classes but instead invite you to make a donation to help us cover our running costs.

A donation of £5 would help us to cover our costs, but everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.
