Monday Evenings 7.30pm – 9.00pm
The evening meditation classes in the Dales town of Settle teach how to gain an experience of inner peace though meditation. They are a great way to learn to meditate, to improve your meditation practice, or to learn new meditation techniques. Through meditation we can learn to relax, let go of our daily concerns and develop a fresh and positive outlook.
The meditation class in Settle are taught by Kelsang Thonchog, a student of the Foundation Programme at Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley.
Everyone is welcome. Each class is one and a half hours and includes guided meditations, a talk explaining how to practice and apply meditation and group discussion. These classes are self contained, so you can attend individual classes.
Class fees: Drop-in £6 per class or purchase a Class Card for £20 which can be used at any 4 “drop in” classes during a 3 month period.
Face to face classes have been temporarily suspended, we do intend to run them again at our regular venues when the coronavirus emergency is over. However, we do still wish to be able to deliver Buddhist teachings on how to maintain inner peace, compassion and clarity of mind during these very difficult times.
We have taken the decision that our classes will now, temporarily, take place online. We intend to run the same classes at the same times and show them live online, with some live interaction possible with the teachers. Those wishing to be involved do need to book, via the link below, so that the connections can be set up. The cost per class will be the same as for the face to face classes.
