A close relationship exists between the breath and our mind, and the benefits of even the simplest breathing meditation are now well known. By engaging in breathing meditation, we can create space in our minds from the busyness and problems of everyday life and experience a special feeling of inner peace. If we are centered and balanced, it is also easier for us to get things done and help others.

FAQs Do I have to be a Buddhist to benefit from meditation? No. Anyone can learn basic meditation and experience the benefits that come from having a peaceful mind. Buddhists respect all people and are happy to help anyone regardless of whether they subscribe to another faith, or to none. Do I need to have experience in meditation or Buddhism to attend the classes? No. All you need is the wish to improve yourself and the quality of your life. What do I need to bring to class? Nothing in particular, just yourself; though you can bring a pen and notepad if you want to take notes. How should I dress for class? No particular clothing is required. Just dress comfortably. Can I bring my kids? Not for lunchtime meditations, sorry, we don’t have the staff. But we have a class especially for kids on Sundays, and on Wednesdays families with kids too young to sit quietly in the main meditation room are invited to use the video link room under supervision with their parents.
