We're not sure yet whether this event will go ahead online or in person at the Centre, as we're currently closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak, with partial re-opening planned for 1st September. We're updating the site regularly so please come back and check frequently, and join our mailing list to stay up to date with new and changed events.

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.

The price for the six weeks is £90 standard rate / £60 concessionary / £25 age 18 - 25. Payment still a problem? As a small unfunded charity, the Centre relies on the generosity of people who come here, but we don't want to turn anyone away from our courses. Please contact the Centre Team on 0161 834 9232 or info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we'll work something out with you.. This course will take place each Wednesday at the same time for the six week duration.
