Learn meditation in Manchester

Please note that from Monday 15 July to Wednesday 24 July 2024 all normal activity – classes, groups and pujas – will be suspended at Kagyu Ling and across the North West, to enable attention to be focused on the visit of His Holiness Karmapa.  Classes and pujas etc. resume on Thursday 25 July. 

Meditation classes are held three times each week at Kagyu Ling: 

Wednesday 10.30am to 11.30am: led by Derek Knott with help from Judy Whitehouse and Mark Brotherton

Wednesday 8pm to 9pm: led by Kamani Wijeyesekera and Terry Donlan

Friday 8pm to 9pm: led by Cath Sainsbury and Chris Dicken

For details, check What’s On.

You don’t need any experience and there is no need to book. Experienced practitioners lead the classes, which give you a chance to learn to meditate and practise simple calmness meditation. In addition, we give an introduction to Buddhism and explore some key aspects of Buddhist teachings.

The sessions last for just under an hour and the suggested contribution per class is £3.
