Drop in meditation class – guided in English


Wednesday 7pm – 8.30pm

These general Programme classes are open to anyone interested in meditation and solving our human problems from the side of our own mind.

Each evening offers the opportunity to follow guided meditations and listen to a teaching on how to practically improve our mind to find real happiness in our daily life.

The teachings are based on the books of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who presents the ancient wisdom of Buddha in a modern day presentation, suitable for us to understand and practice.

The classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners, and emphasise how to use meditation and subsequent practices amidst the busyness of modern, daily life.  The union of Buddha’s teachings and our daily life is the essence of Kadampa Buddhism.

At the end of the class there is time for discussion and questions.

You will go relaxed and inspired into the rest of your week.

Join us. Everyone is welcome!

About these classes:

Pure compassion is a mind that can not bear the suffering of others, but it does not make us depressed. In fact, it provides us with incredible strength to work for others and complete the spiritual path for their sake. It shatters our complacency and makes it impossible for us to settle for the superficial happiness of satisfying our worldly desires. Instead, we will experience a deep inner peace that cannot be disturbed by changing circumstances. It is impossible for strong delusions to arise in a mind full of compassion. If we do not develop delusions, external conditions alone do not have the power to disturb us. Therefore, our mind always remains peaceful when it is governed by compassion. This is the experience of those who have developed their compassion beyond the limited compassion we usually feel for those we feel close to, to a selfless compassion for all living beings.

Of all virtuous minds, compassion and wisdom are the highest. Compassion purifies our mind and when our mind is pure, its objects become pure as well.

Although we already have a certain amount of compassion, it is currently very biased and limited. When our family and friends suffer, we easily develop compassion for them.But we find it far more difficult to be compassionate towards strangers or people we find unpleasant. Moreover, we have compassion for those who experience manifest pain, but not for those who enjoy good circumstances, and certainly not for those who commit harmful acts. If we are serious about realizing our potential, we need to expand the scope of our compassion until it encompasses all living beings without exception, just as a loving mother has compassion for all her children, whether they behave well or badly.In contrast to our present, limited compassion, which arises naturally from time to time, all-encompassing compassion must be consciously trained in meditation over a long period of time.
