Day Courses and Half Day Courses at Amitabha KMC

These courses are suitable for everyone, for those beginning meditation and for those already familiar with meditation.

It’s a great way to take time out and relax and to learn how to practically apply meditation to 

our daily lives.

All courses are taught by experienced meditation teachers and include guided meditations, talks and a chance for questions

Day courses are taught by the Resident Teacher of Amitabha KMC, Kelsang Lamchen.
She will explain and expand on particular topics of Buddhist meditation, drawing from texts and offering further insights from her own experience of daily practice.

There is a suggested donation of £12 for Half Day Courses, £22 for Day Courses (which includes a light vegetarian lunch), and £30 for Blessing Empowerments (also including lunch); however no-one is turned away due to lack of funds.

Most of the Day Courses are from 10:30am to 3:30pm with regular breaks for refreshments and lunch. Please do book in advance so we can prepare enough lunch!
