Meditation Classes

Monday nights offer the opportunity to learn two fundamental meditation practices that help to develop clarity, positivity and peace of mind. Each week we alternate between the two practices, offering guided meditation, discussion and support. There’ll be a tea break half way through to give you the opportunity to ask any further questions and connect with like-minded people.

This class is suitable for new-comers. We also offer more in-depth meditation instruction for those familiar with the basics of meditation practice as well as a context to practice with more experienced meditators.

Classes held at Effra Space, 21 Effra Parade, SW2 1PX.

Please arrive between 7.15-7.25pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.

Suggested Donation £10 Waged/£5 Unwaged.

All Welcome. Classes continue to run on Bank Holidays.

Buddhism & Meditation Classes

Wednesday’s class is open to all those who know the two fundamental meditation practices we teach and are able to sit in meditation without guidance. If you’ve come to our Monday class a few times or learned these practices at another Triratna centre, then you will be fine to come to this class.

Classes usually begin with a 30-40 minute meditation session, followed by a tea break, after which there will be an exploration of a Buddhist theme. Usually this will be in the form of a short talk, discussion and reflection.

This class is a great way to learn about the basic principles of Buddhism and meet like-minded people who will be able to support you in your practice.

Saturday Morning Discussion Sessions

We run a varying programme of Saturday morning discussion sessions. All of them are drop-ins run by donation. See our events calendar for more information. 



We teach meditation and Buddhism as a living spiritual tradition, suitable for present day city life. You don’t have to be a Buddhist to come to our classes. We welcome anyone who is interested in learning about meditation and Buddhism. Our teachers are ordained members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, or those training for ordination, and all have many years of experience of committed personal practice themselves.


We believe cost should not prevent people attending, so all our drop-in classes are offered on a donation or dana basis (dana means generosity). The suggested donation is £10 (full-waged) / (£5 part-waged)
