Buddhist

We are the University of Birmingham Meditation Society.
 

Interested in Meditation?  Have you heard of Mindfulness and want to learn more?  Then come along to our free sessions, every Wednesday 3-5pm!  This year's sessions are led by Dharmashalin, a practicing Buddhist from the local Birmingham Buddhist Centre with decades of experience meditating.

No experience meditating is required, we provide a learning environment for new people as well as a sitting group for those with an established practise.  We typically start the session with a 20-30 minute guided meditation and spend the rest of the session discussing: how we found the practise, any problems or questions; as well as particular topics related to meditation, life or Buddhist Philosophy.

You do not have to be a Buddhist to join and we do not expect you to become one - followers of any religion or none are most welcome.  Meditation and Buddhist philosophy go hand in hand, and the meditations we practise - mindfulness of the breath, and metta bhavana - were developed in Buddhism, which is why we do a bit of both.

Please feel free to join our facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/uobbuddhistmeditation/, here you'll find updates regarding the society and the room location for each week (normally the Cadbury room).

You can email any questions to buddhist@guild.bham.ac.uk or you can just message one of the committee members on Facebook,

Adam Ridley - President

Cameron Kang - Secretary

Mason Owen - Treasurer
