    Manchester Centre for Buddhist Meditation

    secretary: John  (Phone: 07988700524)
    Notes and Events:

    Samatha means calm. Samatha meditation is an effective but gentle way of training the mind to develop inner strength and freedom from turmoil, leading on to clarity and understanding. This path from calm to insight was followed by the Buddha himself, and is a central tradition of Buddhist meditation. There are many kinds of Samatha meditation techniques: this one is based on attention to the breath, a subject which is said to be suitable for all types of people.
     
    By regular daily practice the chattering, unruly mind gradually becomes calmer and develops clarity. The way our mind works becomes less confusing to us and we begin to understand the habits of mind that hold us back from happiness and freedom. We become kinder to ourselves and those around us. Meditation is a practical matter: increased awareness brings an ability to make the most of ourselves in our daily lives.
     
    Classes for beginners are held at 2pm and 8pm on Mondays and at 8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

    Weekday evening classes begin at 7.50 for an 8 pm start. Feel free to join a class at any time.

    Classes run throughout the year during school term times and you may join a class at any time during the term. A particular teacher takes the class on a particular day of the week, and it is recommended to try to keep to the same class. Please arrive in good time.

    The Newmarket Meditation Group (NMG) meets regularly at The Old Stable House Retreat Centre in Newmarket (Suffolk, England). This fine venue, standing in its own secluded grounds, provides ideal facilities for walking and sitting meditation sessions and overnight accommodation for weekend retreats.
       
    The group welcomes newcomers to meditation as well as old hands. The Newmarket Meditation Group is run by Richard Prangnell and Rosie Hitchins, who are both experienced meditators and at different times they have both been Resident Lay Managers at Amaravati Buddhist Monastery.

    Even though the system followed is the same method as taught by the Buddha, the NMG is open to followers of any faith (or none). The NMG offers all comers the opportunity to simply give authentic, Buddhist style meditation a try. If all it does is help to reduce your stress level, then surely that is a positive result!
     
    NMG sessions are invariably informal and easy-going. There is plenty of comfortable seating and lots of space for floor sitters (if your knees can take the strain!) and wheelchairs.

    Meetings last about 2 hours with time divided equally between walking meditation, sitting meditation, group discussion and listening to a talk by a meditation master.
