What to expect
All the classes are led by a team of experienced Buddhists, some are members of the Triratna Order and others are Mitras or friends who have made their own commitment.
The evening begins with a meditation which will be either the mindfulness of breathing or the metta bhavana, take a look at the meditation pages for more detail.
After a tea break, the evening continues with an exploration of Buddhism as a spiritual path. This might include a talk, discussion or a look at Buddhist teachings.
You are welcome to come just for the meditation or the Buddhism or stay for both.
Tuesday 7.30pm - 9.45pm
Open every Tuesday of the year, this friendly drop in session is for everyone; from total beginners through to the very experienced. The average attendance tends to be about 20 people, and a warm welcome is assured. You will receive meditation guidance and the discussion on a Buddhist topic is for all levels of interest and understanding, cultures and beliefs.
Three times a year we run six week courses on Tuesday, which are also drop-in so you can come along for the whole course or just when you can.
Our meditation and Buddhism drop-in classes take place in Hertford and Letchworth and are open to all.
We welcome people with all levels of experience from the long-time meditator to the first-time meditator, and everyone in between.
Being a drop-in class there's no need to book ahead, just come along, you'll find details of how to find each drop-in class when you scroll down the page.
There are no charges to come to a class as our ethos is to make meditation and Buddhism freely available to all, regardless of personal financial situations. We do however have room hire costs so we gratefully accept contributions at the classes, known as dana (generosity).
Thursday 7.30pm - 9.45pm
Led by Satyaketu and Yashodaka, Triratna Order members from Cambridge, the Letchworth group is made up of people from all sorts of different cultures and backgrounds, and the group is relevant to anyone looking for personal growth and meaning.
You don't need any experience of meditation to come along. Learning meditation is a lifelong experience, so we all have to start somewhere. the evening is always structured so that new people will be given the support they need to join in.
