About Buddhist Meditation Society - The society gives people of any belief a place in which to practice meditation and mindfulness in a relaxed community of welcoming people. We run guided sessions every week where people can partake in group meditation, whether you are an experienced meditator or you would like to try meditating for the first time. We also run several socials throughout the term, and will hopefully be running some film nights with a short meditation followed by a thought provoking piece of film and discussions. We are open to anyone studying or working at a Further or Higher Education institution in Leeds and are open to people of any culture or faith.

Details of our sessions - Our weekly sessions run on Wednesdays  5-7 pm. Sessions this term will normally be in Room 6 upstairs in the Union

In these sessions we will practice various kinds of meditation. Sessions will be led by practitioners from the Plum Village/Thich Nhat Hanh's tradition, the Triratna Western Buddhist movement and the FPMT (His Holiness the Dalai Lama's tradition). the society – Sessions are free, so please come along to a session and see for yourself what the society is about. If you then decide you'd like to keep coming then please buy a membership, to help keep the society going. Your membership fee goes to covering costs for our teachers and our other social activities.
