Live-streamed weekly meditation classes

We are now running a programme of streamed meditation classes that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Classes will be taught by Amitabha Kadampa Meditation Centre’s Resident Teacher, Kelsang Lamchen (unless stated otherwise). She has been studying Kadam Dharma for over 20 years, and her warmth and loving example is an inspiration to all.

Swapping our problems for solutions

How is a problem defined? What is it’s nature? And what does it mean to move towards a solution?

A Buddhist approach to external and internal difficulties is a deeply transformative spiritual process that builds confidence, resilience, inner peace and wisdom.

How it works

The classes will be streamed over a programme called Zoom. Once you book for a class, you will be sent a link to join the class via email which you will need to click on just before the class is due to start. 

The live streamed classes will follow the same format as our usual centre/ branch classes:

  • Classes will be offered within our existing catchment area of Bristol and the surrounding area where our branch classes are located (Taunton, Swindon, Chipping Sodbury, Malmesbury, Chippenham, Weston-super-Mare, Clevedon, Bath). If you don’t fall into this catchment area, you can find your local centre who will be offering live streamed classes here
  • The usual suggested donation per class will be reduced to reflect less overheads at our end whilst allowing us to stay financially afloat during this difficult time.
  • We request that links to classes are not shared with others who haven’t booked. If you know of others who may be interested in joining a class please direct them to our website 🙂
