Meditation in the Heart of Manchester

Led by experienced people of colour meditation teacher Aryarakshita. There’ll be introductions to both mindfulness and kindness meditations, guided sessions and periods to connect and share with others. There’ll also be plenty of opportunities to seek advice and pick up tips and techniques, to either start your meditation practice or take it to a deeper level.

Join us on this People of Colour Day Retreat, to have a taste of the experience of stillness, joy and calm that meditation provides to help you to feel nourished, rejuvenated and alive!

This event is freely given, donations welcome. Donations will be collected on the day – give what you can, no amount is too little.

Who is this Event for?

Our People of Colour events are gatherings for people who come from the richly diverse lived experiences of these intentionally welcomed identities: Black, and people of colour inclusive of Asian, South East Asian, Latinx, Arab / Middle Eastern, biracial, mixed heritage, and multiracial.

The day is open to newcomers and those who have been practising for some time.
