Our meditation classes are for anyone who wants to learn how to meditate in a friendly, relaxed setting. No experience is necessary. There is no need to book – just turn up! Everyone is welcome.
The sessions are led by experienced practitioners. They will guide you in a simple meditation technique. You can then practise this yourself at home.
You will also be able to learn a little about the basic teachings of the Buddhist tradition – such as impermanence, karma and compassion.
Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre in Chorlton, Manchester, has a weekly programme of meditation classes. Kagyu Ling also has a network of groups providing meditation sessions in towns and cities across the north west.
