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? The next session is on February 26th, followed by March 12th and March 26th. 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 in which we aren’t holding a retreat. Shared lunch (optional) at 12.30pm, meditation from 1.15pm, finish at 4.30pm.

The next one is 23rd February 2019, followed by April 27rd (in March we have a retreat with Jaya Rudgard).

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
