Nine simple guided meditations that can be practised by anyone. With regular practice, these meditations help us to experience inner peace and mental clarity, and to increase our love and compassion for others.

 

If we train in meditation our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful and we shall experience purer and purer forms of happiness. Eventually we shall able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. 

Meditation connects us to our mind’s extraordinary potential for peace, happiness, love and wisdom. This potential is our Buddha nature, our potential for enlightenment. Meditation puts us in touch with this possibility. We recognize enlightenment not as just imaginary, but as something real that we can tap into in our daily life.
The classes consist of guided meditations, discussion with Q&A .

The way in which we present meditation and Buddhism is accessible to everyone. We offer practical advice as well as methods and techniques that can easily be integrated into daily life. We provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. When you arrive, a volunteer will register you before the class and direct you to the meditation space. Normally before class some announcements will be made.

Our experienced teachers are male or female, lay or ordained (Buddhist monk or nun). They will begin with an introduction, and guide a breathing meditation to help settle your mind. They will then give a teaching based on the topic of the class, with clear and logical explanations using examples and analogies.

An important characteristic of Modern Buddhism is to present Dharma teachings as personal advice that can be integrated into daily life. The intention of the teachings and guided meditations is to help you develop peaceful, clear and positive states of mind. This will help you develop your own inner wisdom, so that you can solve your daily problems and enjoy a more meaningful life.

Depending on the class, there will be either another guided meditation or a discussion with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify doubts.

All of our activities are run by volunteers, and we are a registered charity. The class and course fees help cover the costs of running the Centre.
