The Meditation Room and Classes

The meditation room at Compassion Kadampa Buddhist Centre is a peaceful and inspiring place where everyone is welcome.  It has several Buddha statues and inspiring images representing compassion, wisdom and peaceful minds.

People have been using this space for many years to develop stillness of mind.

Our normal meditation class size is around 10-15 people and you are welcome to sit on a chair or on a meditation cushion on the floor.  Special events can attract more people and our meditation room can fit in around 25 to 30 people on chairs. You are also welcome to join our daily prayer sessions. 

Please leave your shoes outside the meditation room.
