If you have meditated before, then this is for you.
An opportunity to sit with like-hearted people and meditate for a sustained period.
Afterwards there will be tea and cake and a gentle exploration of some aspect of Buddhist teaching, associated with the practice of meditation and what it means for us in our everyday lives.
This is an invitation to go deeper than a normal class allows and to really explore the space that opens up for us when the mind is truly observed and met with kindness, compassion and understanding.
If this sounds perfect for you, please contact me to book your place.
Spaces are limited to facilitate a warm and inclusive opportunity to explore and share without judgement.

A testimonial from our first Sunday Morning Meditation:
'I had been looking forward to the meditation morning for a long while and it exceeded my expectations. The time passed so quickly, and the "breathing" and "walking" meditations were perfect in giving us a feeling of calm and well-being from the start. The beautiful surroundings and wonderful cloud-scapes today added to the sense of relaxation and focus.
Thank you both very much for a lovely morning. Your next session is too far away!' BC
