Our meetings provide a supportive environment where we can meditate together and learn about meditation and Buddhist practice. We meet upstairs at the Friends Meeting House, Meeting House Lane in Lancaster, right next door to Lancaster railway station.
Our weekly meeting includes sitting and walking meditation, and usually a talk, relfection or discussion on issues arising from people’s practice and relevant Buddhist themes. There is often a short Buddhist recitation, dedicated to the benefit of all beings – it is fine for newcomers just to listen. Over a cup of tea we say hello to group members, who are a variety of ages and come from varied backgrounds such as nursing, teaching, medicine, building, looking after family, researching, studying, therapy, business, being unemployed, and being retired.
Most months, at our regular venue, either we have a group evening visit and talk by, or a Saturday day retreat led by a senior Zen Buddhist monk from Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey or based in our local area.
