Why not come along to meditation class?

Would you like to try meditation, but don’t know where to start?Lotus

By learning how to meditate we allow ourselves to stay in the present moment, connecting with the natural awareness that lies beneath our thoughts and emotions. This awareness is the source of true wisdom and compassion.

The best way to learn to meditate is to receive guidance from someone with experience in meditation techniques.

Try a meditation class

Kagyu Buddhism north west runs meditation classes throughout the week. There are classes at Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre in Manchester, and in Birkenhead, Chester, Colne, Didsbury, Hale, Liverpool, Macclesfield, New Brighton, Poulton-le-Fylde and Prestwich.

Each meditation class is led by friendly, experienced practitioners and all are welcome – whether you’re a complete beginner or have some experience of meditation.

Come along to learn a simple calm-abiding meditation technique, which helps the mind to become more calm and still. You can then practise meditation yourself at home. You will also be able to learn a little about the basic teachings of the Buddhist tradition such as impermanence and compassion.

At all the classes there is time for questions, conversation and refreshments. And there’s no need to book a place in advance – just turn up!
