People of Colour Group

Sat 22nd Jun : 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Three women of colour in Lotus Hall

A Regular Meet-up for People of Colour

An informal, welcoming space for all people of colour to learn, explore and connect around meditation and the Buddha’s teachings, led by Āryarakṣitā.

Stillness, the wide-eyed stillness, blinks and at once we are awakened – softly, gently . . . into the mystery of the spaces we breathe” – Segovia Amil

The world can seem really messed up a lot of the time. How do we maintain a sense of stability, peace and groundedness when all around can seem chaotic?

Meditation can help

Meditation can help us develop an even greater degree of stillness, joy and compassion, for ourselves and all around us. Through the act of noticing, paying attention and bringing a soft, gentle ease to our breath, we really can touch into a place of warmth, acceptance and happiness within us.

• Just come along, no need to book

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.

Newcomers and experienced meditators are all welcome, no experience necessary. It's always safest to check the website before setting off in case the details have changed.
