Our thoughts and attitudes create all of our experiences.

If we want to take control of our life and find the happiness we long for, we must learn how to control our mind. Using meditation and Buddhist wisdom, we can reduce negative thinking and learn to think in ways that result in a more positive and peaceful outlook. Through training our mind, we develop the inner space to respond to daily challenges in more constructive ways, improving our relationships with others and making our life truly meaningful.


Our general programme classes include Dharma teachings along with guided meditations. Each class is self-contained and is also presented as part of a series. Drop into any class you like. These classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced meditation practitioners. No special clothing is required. Most people sit on chairs. Everyone welcome!
