Evening drop-in classes
What to expect at an evening class
Meditation and Buddhism evening drop-in classes offer simple, practical methods to develop inner peace and improve the quality of our life.
Each class begins with a simple guided breathing meditation. This is followed by a talk, and a second guided meditation that helps us to reflect and concentrate on the main points covered in the talk.
The talks are based on the teachings of Buddha. They show us clearly how to integrate ancient wisdom into our modern lives so that we can find inner peace and meaning in our often hectic world.
There is also an opportunity to ask questions.
