The next meeting is Monday 2nd October and we’re meeting in person. Anantamati is starting our new dharma series looking at Vision and Transformation. Hope to see you there.
Our group meets from 7pm - 9pm when on zoom and 7.15pm - 9.15pm when in person (1st and 3rd Monday of the month). Please note that at our in person evenings, the doors close at 7.15pm for security reasons. We will look out for people coming until 7.20pm but after that there will be no access.
The class begins with an introduction to the evening and a short breathing space. The first half of the evening we usually share and discuss a teaching of the Buddha or our Buddhist practice.
After a short break the second half is devoted more to meditation. The instruction given is tailored to the needs of those attending, so if you are new to meditation we can offer full instruction and guidance, whereas if you are an old hand you can have the freedom to explore your meditation practise at your own pace. Sometimes during this section we look more closely at particular aspects of meditation or engage with some Buddhist ritual. We usually end the evening with a mantra.
Our meetings are a mixture of in person and zoom. Every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month is in person and all the others are over zoom.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a Buddhist?
You do not need to consider yourself a Buddhist to join us - we are made up of people from all sorts of different cultures and backgrounds, and the group is relevant to anyone looking for personal growth and meaning.
Do I need to have any meditation experience?
You do not need to have any experience of meditation to come along. Learning meditation is a life-long experience, so we all have to start somewhere! The evening is always structured so that new people will be given the support they need to join in.
How much does the class cost?
Our classes run on donations. We suggest £7 although you are free to donate whatever you want and we’d rather you come along even if you aren’t able to make a donation.
