Attending in-person…

To help us keep visitor numbers safe please let us know you’re coming by booking in advance using the orange booking buttons below. And to help us keep all our lovely meditators safe please read our guidelines before attending by clicking here. Thank you for your support!

Update to online classes…

As the world returns to more normality it is necessary to revise the streaming of classes and courses. Following the guidelines set out by the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) we will no longer be live streaming or recording for later catch up classes or courses held at the Vajrapani Centre. This is mainly because it is more beneficial and effective for students to attend in person classes, where we receive direct teachings and interaction, as was offered previously. This will apply from the 1st September 2022.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Going on Holiday inside

Tuesday evenings 7.30pm - 9pm  |  August 16th - August 30th

£7 per class or £14 for full series of three classes  |  Free for all members

 

We all look forward to going on holiday because we believe that holidays bring happiness. But while a normal holiday may give us a break from the tedium of difficulties in our daily routine, where ever we go we still take our mind! And if our mind is filled with frustration, upset and selfishness, we will bring these things with us where ever our outer destination maybe.
The real holiday and what we need is to take a break from our negative ways of thinking. In this series of classes, we will focus on developing happy, peaceful minds, so where ever we are, we will have a happy, peaceful experience.

Meditation for Wellbeing

Tuesday evenings 7.30pm - 9pm  |  September 6th - October 11th

Thursday mornings 11am - 12.30pm  |  September 8th - October 13th

£7 per class or £35 for full series of six classes  |  Free for all members

In-Person class only. Online classes are no longer available from the 1st September.

 

In our modern life, the pace is fast and the focus always on external achievements and success. We barely have time to enjoy a moment of inner peace and relaxation. This way of living takes it toll on our mental well being as well as our physical health.

We rarely think about our mind, yet it is our mind that is central in all our experiences and whether we feel happiness or suffering. In this series we will learn what is meditation and how to practice meditation in daily life.

Through this we will come to understand how meditation is essential for everyone, because it is the scientific method that brings inner peace, well-being and happiness in our mind.

Tickets will be available to book from 15th August
