Regular Sitting Groups
Groups listed on this page: Mid Wales; Sanghapadipa Temple – Full Moon Meditation Meeting; South Wales.
Mid Wales: Llanwrtyd Wells
We meet on Sundays, 4.00 – 6.00pm, apart from when we hold a day retreat.
The meetings are an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the Dhamma (the Buddha’s teachings) and its relevance to our daily life. We start each meeting with a sit followed by discussion of a pre-agreed reading from the Dhamma. We usually sit for 45 minutes but when joined by people new to meditation we offer a guided practice and an opportunity to learn about seated meditation.
There is no need to book but if you want to have a chat before coming for the first time please don’t hesitate to call Ella (01591 610 011) or Dave (01597 860 327).
The meetings take place at The Yoga Room in Llanwrtyd Wells, LD5 4SY. The Yoga Room is pinned on Bing and Google maps. If you are coming by car, please park in the parking area. It is OK to block others.
The meetings are free of charge.
Full Moon Meditation Meeting – Sanghapadipa Temple, South Wales
Based in ‘Sanghapadipa’ a Theravada Buddhist Temple, our practice is guided by the formulaic teachings of the Pali Cannon. Practice isn’t only solitary – Insight Dialogue is a method that is used within our meetings. Meetings may not always be indoors but involve travel to our temple, outside in the woodland or in a scenic peaceful location across South Wales. Meetings are not constrained by time (come for an hour or stay for six, its up to you) If you would like to join, please email – firstname.lastname@example.org. Dates and locations provided each month.
There are a few small meditation groups that meet regularly in people’s houses. To find out more please come to one of the South Wales day retreats and let Tim know you would like to connect with one of the local sitting groups.
The Buddha has made the Dhamma clear in many ways, as though he were… …holding up a lamp in the dark for those with eyesight to see form. I go to the Buddha for refuge and to the Dhamma and to the Sangha.
