Meditation in the north west – join our classes

meditation class

Our meditation classes in the north west are for anyone who wants to learn how to meditate in a friendly, relaxed setting, and explore Buddhism.  No experience is necessary and there is no need to book – just turn up! Everyone is welcome.

Experienced practitioners lead the sessions and will guide you in a simple meditation technique. You can then practise this yourself at home.

In addition, you will 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 for beginners.

Meditation classes at Kagyu Ling are held on Wednesdays and Fridays. For more information visit the Kagyu Ling page, or What’s On.

Kagyu Dechen Buddhism north west also has a network of groups across Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Liverpool. All the links are given below.

We have no paid staff and our income comes entirely from donations. Most classes are free of charge (unless we are renting the space) but we generally suggest that participants make a small contribution (typically £3) towards running costs if they can afford to do so.

Online meditation

Regular online Meditation Zones are held during the week, using Zoom. These classes are open to everyone, and there is no charge.

First, each session gives an explanation of a simple calming meditation practice. After that there is a brief talk on a key aspect of the Buddha’s teachings. Each class lasts about an hour.
