Enter via the rear ‘after hours’ entry. Please arrive by 7:25pm. We can’t leave the door open and want to avoid people ringing the doorbell once we’ve started the meditation.
How it works
This is not a meditation class. We’re simply sitting together as a group to support each other’s meditation practice.
If you’re new to meditation, have a look at the basic instructions page. There’s not much you need to know to get started—at its core, meditation is quite simple. The real learning comes as you start working with your mind and building your own practice.
We usually begin with a guided meditation, and then sit in silence for 15-20 minutes to develop our mindfulness skills.
We post an event notification on Facebook each week, so if you like and follow our page you’ll know when we’re meeting.
7:30pm – Welcome
7:35pm – Guided meditation
7:55pm – Silent meditation
8:15pm – Finish
What to bring
If you plan to sit on the floor, bring your own meditation mat and cushion.
There are chairs at the venue, so you don’t have to sit on the floor. You may want to bring a cushion to support your back so you can sit up straight.
We also recommend you bring a shawl or blanket to keep warm in the cooler months, and wear socks because you’ll remove your shoes before you come into the meditation room.
You can lie down to meditate
If you want to lie down to meditate, you’ll need to bring a pillow and blanket. A yoga mat to lie on would be a good idea too.
Let us know if you’re coming

- Accept our event invitation on Facebook so we’ve got a rough idea of numbers.
Dey Alexander facilitates the group. She’s been meditating for over 15 years. Having learned meditation in a Hindu tradition, Dey is now interested in mindfulness and Buddhist meditation practices.
