Weekly Classes

Current Theme: ‘How to be cool, calm and collected’
Our weekly drop-in classes consist of a combination of guided meditations and brief teachings that provide practical guidance on how we can use Buddha’s teachings to help us face the challenges of our modern daily life.

Lunchtime Meditation

Give you mind a 25-minute breather in the day and reflect on Buddhist wisdom within a guided meditation. These meditations are based on the weekly theme of our Sunday morning class and can work in powerful combination with attendance of that class, or simply as standalone bite-size chunks of new ways of thinking.

Saturday Morning Courses

Similar to the weekly classes, our half day courses provide the opportunity to explore particular topics and understand their relevance to our daily lives.

Weekly In-depth Classes

This class gives us the opportunity to look in more depth at the key concepts of Buddhism. The current classes are based on the ‘Modern Buddhism’ book written by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. They are drop-in classes which you can join at any time.

Foundation Programme

The Foundation Programme is a committed programme of study that allows us to gain a deeper experience of Buddha’s teachings through a detailed study and meditation on the essential subjects of Kadampa Buddhism.
