Clacton-on-Sea Introductory Meditation & Buddhism Course

Starts 1st November, every Thursday for 8 weeks, 7pm - 9:30pm.

An 8 week course introducing meditation and Buddhist teachings.

We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Mettā Bhāvanā (“development of loving kindness”), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world. Each week we alternate between the two practices.

In addition to learning meditation, we will introduce traditional teachings of the Buddha in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world.

This is an 8 week course. Spaces are limited, and booking in advance is required. The cost for the whole course is £30.

Frequently Asked Questions

I can't make this course, when will the next one be?

We will announce new course dates on this page once they are decided. In the meantime, we have a weekly class every Thursday that you could come to.

What should I wear?

There's no special requirements, just whatever is comfortable to sit in.

Is it okay if I can't make every week?

The cost covers the entire course, and it is best to come every week. If you'd like to come but there is one or two weeks you can't make, please contact us before booking.

Do I need to be a Buddhist?

The course is aimed for people who are completely new to meditation and Buddhism, and suitable for everyone, regardless of your religious beliefs.

I can't afford the cost, can I have a discount?

Unlike most of our classes, our courses have a set fee to ensure there is a commitment to attend. We keep it as low as possible to cover our costs, but if you can't afford the fee, we may be able to offer a reduced rate. Please contact us to discuss.
