If you’d like to try meditation online, join one of our Meditation Zones on Tuesday or Thursday.
Meditation Zones offer the chance to join in meditation online when it’s not possible to go to a centre. These are open classes. All are welcome – whether you’ve got some experience of meditation or Buddhism, or none at all. Also, you can join online wherever you are.
The online sessions started at the beginning of lockdown and regularly attract people from across the UK and as far afield as Portugal, Malta and Sweden.
First, each session gives an explanation of a simple, yet effective, calming meditation practice. After that there is a brief talk on a key aspect of the Buddha’s teachings. The session ends with reflection on the teaching and an opportunity for questions and answers.
To join one of the online meditation classes, download the Zoom app onto your phone or computer and click one of the links below.
