Learn Buddhist meditation in central Leeds. That’s right, Tibetan Buddhism and meditation in the Heart of Yorkshire!

Our weekly meditation classes are accessible to all, regardless of meditation experience, religious background and beliefs. We provide full meditation instructions so that you can begin meditating from your very first session. Complete beginners are always very welcome!

We have now had our last meeting for the summer and are taking a summer break. We hope to start meeting again in mid-September. For more details or to register your interest please email: leeds@ahs.org.uk

Classes are led by an experienced meditation practitioner from the Awakened Heart Sangha. In addition to years of experience as meditators, our class leaders have received extensive training in how to communicate meditation to others and in providing ongoing meditation guidance and mentoring.

Below is a short video of Lama Shenpen explaining the importance of having a trained mentor or teacher in order to learn how to meditate, and the importance of Transmission and Lineage:
