Buddhism offers a vast array of meditations, some simple and others complex, but all with the basic aim of transforming our mind in order that we perceive and experience our world for the better.
Join us in an exploration of a variety of these meditations, from simple mindfulness practices and visualisations to those for purifying negativities and cultivating love and wisdom.
Each session is guided, and allows ample time for discussion. Suitable for everyone. More info here.
