What Meditation is available at Marple Cross?
The Marple Cross Centre hosts a Buddhist Meditation Group which is open to beginners as well as anyone with more experience. You don’t have to be a Buddhist either – just to have an interest in learning about the techniques and benefits of Meditation. There’s no need to book in advance, just turn up on the day.
Chan Buddhist Meditation, Tuesdays 6.30-8.30, £3 per session
A welcoming and friendly group, which balances meditative practice with informal learning about the history of Chan Buddhism, one of the oldest strands of Buddhist meditative tradition. For the next few weeks the group will be looking into some of the stories of the famously eccentric early Zen teachers, starting with the first one, Bodhidharma. The group also spends time each week in meditative sitting. The group leader is George Marsh.
