  • About Meditation Instruction

    Meditation instruction ought to leave you capable of meditating without any dependence on a teacher, or on an app, or on music.  Understanding how your mind interfaces with your experience of reality is part of the learning and motivates us to meditate. 

  • Sitting with others in Meditation

    It is good, pleasurable in fact, to sit to meditate with others. No matter where you have learnt to meditate, you may well like to sit in a group with others meditating. Oddly, people meditating together feel very connected, even though meditation is a non-talking practice!

    Here are some times at the Blackburn room where you are invited to do just that, without any fee:

    Sundays at 8.00am

    Fridays at 7.00 pm
    Friday evening meditations. Read more
