A Course in Buddhist Meditation: Tranquillity, Love, Joy, and Wisdom

Completely transformative . . . I feel much calmer

The two Buddhist meditation practices we teach in this course help develop mindfulness, concentration, friendliness and kindness. Practised regularly, these meditations also form the indispensable basis of Insight meditation, which results in wisdom and compassion. The same meditation practices are taught on our Buddhism foundation and introductory courses.

Meditation is not just about learning techniques and following instructions – it is also about understanding the spirit of meditation. It is best to get to know this through contact with an experienced teacher – someone in touch with that spirit.

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.
