Online Six-week Meditation Course starts

The two simple Buddhist meditation practices we teach in this friendly course help develop mindfulness, concentration, positivity and kindness. The same meditation practices are taught on our Buddhism courses.

Meditation is not just about learning techniques though. It's about understanding the spirit of meditation and using what we learn in our day to day lives. Over the years our Buddhist community's teachers have shared that spirit with thousands of people facing stress, tiredness, feeling overwhelmed or simply wanting to be more in touch with themselves.

"It was a very supportive and accepting environment.  I have loved every minute!"

Six-week courses take place several times through the year, with occasional breaks at holiday times. This online meditation course covers similar material and is equivalent to the Meditation Foundation Course


Payment

The price for the six weeks is £90 standard rate / £60 concessionary / £25 age 18 - 25. Payment still a problem? These are very difficult times for us, and being closed means we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs. However, we don't want to turn anyone away from our courses. Please contact the Centre Team at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we'll work something out with you.

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed means we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please make a regular or one-off donation here. The usual rates for these classes are £6 standard rate or £4 concessionary rate

Mindfulness and Kindness Online Lunchtime Meditation Class

Ordinary life can be hard, but things are particularly difficult right now for many of us. How can Buddhist meditation help? Meditation can help us develop mindfulness, kindness, clarity, positivity, and can enable us to gain a bigger perspective on life. Through regular practice and over time, we can learn our mind’s habits, and cultivate new, more positive ways of being in the world. Come and find out how!

Our weekday lunchtime meditation sessions are guided and are suitable for anyone. No need to book. They now run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

First-time meditators are particularly welcome but old hands very welcome too! Go to our meditation page if you’d like to find out more before you visit. Even in an online group, meditating together can help us feel connected with others, whatever our situation, there’s usually a bit of time at the end to ask questions or talk about how it went.
