Community meditation initiatives in Manchester
Bringing the benefits of meditation to the local community
Thursday Morning Parent & Babies
"This class has arisen through a request and we are learning as we go.
It is an opportunity for parents & babies to get together and while the babies crawl around and play together there is a 15 minute guided meditation for the adults.
We are always open to suggestions for further classes for children & toddlers."
Dealing with anxiety
"Anxiety and stress are an increasingly common problem for people in our busy, modern world. These states of mind prevent us from experiencing peace and enjoying life.
Learn how to identify and remove the causes of anxiety and worry, and enjoy a more balanced and happy life.
These workshops offer an introduction to meditation and methods from Buddha’s teachings that we can bring into our every day life to deal with problems and find inner peace and calm.
Each session is 1 hour long and consists of guided meditation, a talk and discussion. There is a break in the middle for continental brunch."
"This club aims to develop and nurture the good qualities in children, through meditation and positive thinking.
It provides an opportunity to come along with your children and learn more about Buddhism and the basics of meditation.
Each session focuses on a positive state of mind that we can cultivate, and aims to help children to experience inner peace and calm through meditation, discussion and play.
Parents and children do not need to be Buddhist, as the class is open to everyone.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Cost: £2 per child.
The session lasts for half an hour in the meditation room, then there is an opportunity to relax in our World Peace Cafe area for art and craft activities."
