Maitreya Buddhist Centre

What Happens at a Class

Classes are suitable for both beginners and more experienced meditators. Anyone can practice meditation and everyone is welcome to attend. Most classes run for an hour and a half. We meditate sitting on chairs to ensure that everyone is comfortable. There is no physical exercise involved.

The general structure of the class

  • Simple guided breathing meditation to calm the mind
  • Short Buddhist prayer to increase positivity in the mind
  • Practical advice for daily life on an aspect of Buddhist meditation – different topic each week
  • Another guided meditation and questions & answers
  • After the class everyone is welcome to stay for light refreshments.

Attending the class

The classes are organised as short courses, usually 3, 4 or 5 weeks long. You can attend the whole course or simply drop in whenever you can as each class is self-contained.

For info on our current meditation classes please visit the tab at the top of the home page and select your chosen venue: Bexhill or Eastbourne . We look forward to seeing you.
