Learn Buddhist meditation in the heart of Manchester. Join our weekly classes in Chorlton to learn about meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Our classes are suitable for all levels of experience from complete novice to experienced meditators. Beginners are always welcome. Each class includes clear, detailed meditation instruction, so that you can begin meditating from your very first session.

Our classes are led by meditation instructors trained in the Awakened Heart Sangha. Our instructors have been practising meditation for many years and have undergone additional thorough training to ensure that they are qualified to introduce and guide others in the practice of meditation.

Our next meeting is Wednesday 2nd May 2018 at 7.30pm. You can find more details here or by emailing: manchester@ahs.org.uk.

Below is a short video of Lama Shenpen explaining the importance of having a trained mentor or teacher in order to learn how to meditate, and the importance of Transmission and Lineage:
