The London Gay and Bisexual Men's Buddhist Meditation Group Meetup

The evening consists of a series of guided meditations starting with a body scan that leads into attending to the sensations of the breath as a focus for the mind. This is followed by a ten minute walking meditation and a 20 minute tea break. The walking meditation provides a transition from sitting meditation to activity and is a useful tool to have when in the busyness of London – transforming a walk into an opportunity for mindful attentiveness. The tea break provides an opportunity to meet with other participants as well as being an opportunity to stretch your legs!

After the tea break there is either a short talk on a theme related to meditation or group discussions among participants on a particular theme. This is followed by the Loving Kindness meditation which has as its focus the internal expression of well-wishing towards oneself and then a friend and finally all beings. This meditation is also fully guided and a different approach is used each week to help find a way of engaging with it.

    Guys I'm really sorry I didn't make it yesterday. I went to Bikram yoga and thought I'd get out earlier. Sadly not. I shall hopefully see you on 3rd June. Until then.......

    A very pleasant evening led and coordinated by Nick. Nice quiet room in Quaker house literally 5 mins from Leicester Square. Simple introductory mindful practices and loving kindness/ metta meditation. A really nice social at the Marquis pub in kool old room above pub, almost like a private lounge. Best part was meeting really fun guys who are both spiritually minded, intelligent and social. Thanks Nick and all who attended for a fantastic evening. Meditation can be really fun and relaxing. Please SUPPORT THIS SANGHA!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
