Notes and Events:
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.
