If you would like to take part in our practice you are welcome to attend the group meetings. The first time you come you will need to learn how to meditate in the Serene Reflection tradition.

You may find it helpful to read "Sitting Buddha". It can be listened to or downloaded here. Chapter 2 is particularly useful for your first visit to the group.

We don't make any charge to attend the group meetings or for meditation instruction. There is a donation bowl if you wish to make an offering to help cover room hire and other costs.
