Tools for Living your Life

A friendly and practical weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation, with the option of joining us online or attending in-person at the Centre. We cover a different topic each time, usually in series lasting a few weeks each, and each session includes a period of led meditation.

Everyone welcome, any Saturday

Whether you are completely new to Buddhism and meditation or want to revisit the core teachings in a friendly group, join us for a warm welcome on a Saturday morning. Come once or as often as you like and there's no need to be here at the beginning of a series, each session stands alone and we always start with a recap. Suryaka, Shakyajata, Suryasraddha and/or Mahabodhi usually lead the sessions with a team of friends from the Centre.

About Meditation

Meditation can help us develop mindfulness, kindness, clarity, positivity, and can enable us to gain a bigger perspective on life. Whether online or in the same space, meditating together can help us feel connected with others, whatever our situation.

There’s more about Buddhist meditation on our meditation page and there's usually a bit of time at the end of the session to ask questions or talk about how it went.

• If you'd like an unguided daily morning sit, The Buddhist Centre Online offers online open meditation, 7.30 - 8.15 am, Monday to Saturday.


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 at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk, and ask to talk confidentially to one of our Order members, before deciding whether to attend.

Tools for Living your Life

A friendly and practical weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation, with the option of joining us online or attending in-person at the Centre. We cover a different topic each time, usually in series lasting a few weeks each, and each session includes a period of led meditation.

Everyone welcome, any Saturday

Whether you are completely new to Buddhism and meditation or want to revisit the core teachings in a friendly group, join us for a warm welcome on a Saturday morning. Come once or as often as you like and there's no need to be here at the beginning of a series, each session stands alone and we always start with a recap. Suryaka, Shakyajata, Suryasraddha and/or Mahabodhi usually lead the sessions with a team of friends from the Centre.
