Groups

Meditation evenings

We offer meditation evenings on alternate Tuesdays. There is an early group 6.15 – 7.15pm, particularly for newcomers to meditation, with some instruction and guided meditation, and a later session 7.30 – 9pm for all-comers. The sessions include sitting and walking meditation, and there are sometimes discussions on a theme connected with meditation practice. You are welcome to come to both sessions & there is no need to book.

When?   NO DATES IN AUGUST, Sept. 12th and 16th, October 10th and 24th. For all dates also see our Calendar.

Where? Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James St, Sheffield S1 2EW. Wheelchair accessible. Map  Optional donations are welcome to cover room hire.

 

Sangha Saturdays  

‘Sangha’ is a word from Pali or Sanskrit which is used in the West to mean a Buddhist community. We hold regular Sangha Saturdays where we meet up for a chat over a shared lunch or cup of tea, meditate together and often listen to a recorded talk. There is no need to book and everyone is welcome, although you may find it helpful to have done an introductory course in meditation or mindfulness. Optional donations to cover room hire.

When?  Final Saturday of most months – 30th September, 28th October, 25th November. Shared lunch (optional) at 12.30pm, meditation from 1.15pm, finish at 4.30pm.

Where? Shirley House, Psalter Lane, Sheffield S11 8YL. At corner of Psalter Lane and Cherry Tree Road, parking in St. Andrew’s Church car park.  Wheelchair accessible. Map

 

New to meditation or mindfulness practice?

We occasionally run retreats specifically for beginners, although there are no dates coming up at the moment. There are also a number of courses offered in Sheffield by other groups, for example The Centre for Mindful Life Enhancement, or the Sheffield Buddhist Centre.
