£6 standard rate or £4 concessionary rate
• We don’t want to turn anyone away. If you can’t afford the charges, then have a word with us - we’ll try and help
• Please make sure you arrive in good time so the class isn’t disturbed by latecomers. We'll do our best to be flexible if you're delayed, but can't admit anybody more than five minutes after the start time


More about these Buddhism and Meditation Sessions

We mostly look at how Buddhism and meditation might help in our everyday lives, and around half the time will be spent in meditation, with full instructions and guidance. It’s a great way to check out whether you’d like to sign up for an evening course in Buddhism and meditation, or just a great start to your weekend! Read about our approach to Buddhism and the kinds of meditation we teach. The sessions are usually grouped around a theme over a month or so of Saturdays, but there is no need to come to all of them or to start at the beginning, even if you’re here for the first time. Each session stands alone and will always start with a recap when it’s needed.

Health Issues

If there are any health issues, physical, emotional or mental, that could affect your participation in a course or event, please contact the Buddhist Centre on 0161 834 9232, and ask to talk confidentially to one of our Order members, before deciding whether to attend.

Ancient Wisdom, Modern World

How might Buddhist values help shape a world that desperately needs to change, and do we need to change ourselves, first? We’ll explore these questions and more in a new four-week series. The teachings of Buddhism can offer us so much more than feelings of stress relief and relaxation – good as those things are! They can offer us a radical new way of being and relating to one another. Come and find out how.

No charge, but as an unfunded charity, we rely on the generosity of people who use and value the Centre to help cover running costs, over £6,000 a week. We will welcome donations on the day and beyond.

Living through boundless connection, led by Claire Morris and Vidyapala

The Buddha and his disciples lived in vivid connection with the natural world and all of life. How might Buddhist teachings help us to move from separation and alienation to intimacy and connection? What impact might this have on the way we care for our world? Although the sessions are grouped around a theme, there is no need to come to all of them, even if you’re here for the first time. We’ll also be meditating.

Week 1: 20th November Imagining boundless connection
Week 2: 27th November From seperation to connection: Earth and Water
Week 3: 4th December From seperation to connection: Fire and Air
Week 4: 11th December: How to stay connected

Each session stands alone and they will always start with a recap if needed. We’ll start each evening with a cup of tea in our kitchen, and then up to the shrine room at 7.30pm. The evenings will be led by the core team of Sanghadhara, Siladevi and Vidyapala, although look out for special guest teachers!

Who is Ancient Wisdom, Modern World for?

Anyone who has learned the two meditation practices we teach here – Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana.
