Meditation in Manchester
You are welcome to come to any of the meditation classes at Kagyu Ling. Classes are held throughout the week – see below for a full list. No experience is necessary and there is no need to book – you can just turn up. All our classes are led by experienced practitioners and give you a chance to learn and practise simple calmness meditation.
The sessions last for just under an hour and there is time before and afterwards for a chat and a chance to ask questions over tea and coffee in a friendly, relaxed setting.
