Drop-in Buddhist Meditation Classes
The evening meditation classes in Ilkley teach you how to gain an experience of inner peace though meditation. They are a great way to learn to meditate, to improve your meditation practice, or to learn new meditation techniques. Through meditation we can learn to relax, let go of our daily concerns and develop a fresh and positive outlook.
The classes in Ilkley are taught by our Resident Teacher at Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. Gen Kelsang Päljin is a Buddhist monk with many years experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism. He is able to explain Buddha’s teachings in clear and simple terms so that we can apply meditation in our daily lives and find deep and lasting happiness.
Each class is 1.25 hours in length and includes guided meditations as well as explanations of how to practice and apply meditation. These classes are self contained, so you can attend individual classes.
Everyone is welcome.
