University Buddhist Meditation Group

1.00pm to 2.00 pm every Tuesday in the Gatehouse on University Road.

The University Buddhist Meditation Group is open to anyone, staff or student, and meets at the Gatehouse Chaplaincy building every Tuesday lunchtime at 1.00pm.

Sitting Meditation is from 1.15pm to 1.45pm and we try to find time for a cup of tea and a chat before or after the formal meditation. We use Buddhist imagery and engage in some brief and minimal ritual but the emphasis is on personal meditation practice. People from any religious faith or with none are very welcome.

The meetings would suit anyone who wants the opportunity to sit and practise with others for half an hour. We offer basic meditation instruction and can advise on contact with established local groups in the various Buddhist Traditions. If you would like some meditation instruction please try to arrive as promptly as possible to allow time for some guidance before the sitting session begins. Chairs are available to sit on but anyone wanting to use a cushion or other aid should try to bring their own.

We meet weekly in vacations and during term except when the University is closed.
