Our Introductory Courses take place one evening per week for five weeks. The groups are up to ten people. Courses are open to anybody with an interest in meditation and no previous experience or knowledge is necessary. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. There is a break for a light vegetarian meal half way through the evening.
