If you’d like to try meditation online during the lockdown, why not join one of our Meditation Zones: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Meditation Zones offer the chance to join in meditation online when it’s not possible to go to a centre. They are open sessions, and all are welcome – whether you’ve got some experience of meditation or Buddhism, or none at all.
Each session includes an explanation of a simple, yet effective, calming meditation practice which will be followed by a brief talk on a key aspect of the Buddha’s teachings. The session will end with a period of reflection on the teaching and an opportunity for questions and answers.
To join in, download the Zoom app onto your phone or computer and click one of the links below.

Kagyu Dechen Buddhism
Kagyu Dechen Buddhism NW runs Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre in Manchester, and groups across the region, which usually hold regular meditation classes. As the centres and groups are closed due to the virus situation, we are now offering meditation online. To keep Kagyu Ling and the other North West groups running we rely on donations from people attending classes, so please consider this if you join one of the online sessions. You can make a donation here: online donation.
