FAQs

Q) Do I need to be Buddhist to attend?

A) No. We try to present Buddha’s teachings in a way that is accessible to everyone, and no religious obligation is required.

Q) Do I need to have any experience?

A) No. Everyone is welcome, including beginners. The classes are fully guided so all you need to do is show up.

Q) Do I need to wear a specific type of clothing?

A) No. Meditation is done mainly on chairs and you can choose to wear whatever is most comfortable.

Q) Is there any physical exercise involved?

A) No. The classes focus on meditation and teachings alone. You can choose to sit on a chair or meditation cushion.

Q) Do I need to wait for the next series of classes to begin?

A) No, please feel free to drop in whenever you like. Attending the entire series of classes is highly beneficial, as each class builds on the next. However, each class is taught in such a way that if you only attend one class, you will derive benefit from it.

Q) Why do your charge for classes?

A) We are a registered charity (Charity # SC038810) run entirely by volunteers, no-one receives a salary. However, the funds we receive are used to maintain the meditation centre in good working order – any surplus is donated to the charity International Temples Project.
