Why Meditate?

Meditation has become widely accepted for its health benefits which include:

Ability to reduce one’s stress levels

Pulling oneself out of depression

Overcoming sleep problems

Helping improve focus and concentration

Join like minded people in practising Dhammakaya Meditation, a simple and effective technique, suitable for people of all levels of experience

Keep your inspiration to meditate going, by becoming part of a group that meditates regularly with a resident Buddhist monk in the quiet and conducive atmosphere of a meditation centre

Classes may include a video presentation, simple stretching exercises and guided meditation practice

Classes are open to all people, of all beliefs and religious orientation, or who have no religious orientation at all

Following the meditation you are free to go home, stay for refreshments or and chat to one of our resident monks, who are more than happy to answer any questions you may have, and don’t worry, there will never be any pressure or attempt to convert you to Buddhism.

Loose-fitting (but modest) clothes are recommended for your own comfort. In the Dhammakaya meditation tradition, it’s customary to wear light coloured (preferably white) clothing as it helps the meditation’s atmosphere, but you don’t have to

We don’t charge for meditation, but the centre does rely on donations to keep going. If you can donate £5.00,  it will help us to keep providing these classes to the community. However, we will never turn anyone away due to lack of funds

Students under 16 may be accepted with parental consent

Temple staff may take photographs of the participants during the class

Photographs help form a record of temple activities and may be published online

When attending meditation classes, please consider out neighbours. We ask that you don’t park across the road from the temple gate. Thank you
