Frequently Asked Questions

Is it okay to join in the middle of the series?

Absolutely. Though of course you'll get those most out of the class by attending the whole series, there's no need to wait until the start of the next series if you want to start coming.

How long do I need to have been coming?

If you know the stages to the two meditations taught at the centre, the class will be suitable for you.

I can't make it to any of the introductory classes, can I come to this class instead?

While our introductory classes are the best choice for those new to meditation, you're very welcome to attend this class if you can't make our Wednesday Newcomers Night or Friday Lunchtime Drop-In classes.

If you're not familiar with the meditations we teach, private instruction can be provided.

How much does the class cost?

We don't charge for our classes, and the team are not paid for their time. We simply ask that those who are able to do so make a donation to the centre to help us cover our running costs.

The suggested amount, based on how many people come and how much it costs to run the centre, is £7, but this is not a fixed cost and everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.

We can take donations by card or cash.
