Daily Guided Meditations
We offer drop-in guided meditations led by experienced students from Monday to Saturday (no session on Sunday) at 9:30am for around one hour, with time afterward to ask questions (optional!).
These sessions are suitable for complete beginners and those who have more familiarity with meditation. Registration is not necessary, just drop-in. There will be a donation box at the back of the hall and we welcome any contribution you'd like to make.
There are various types of meditation in Tibetan Buddhism, and we practice a few of them in these drop-in sessions, with an emphasis on stilling the body & mind and exploring the nature of attention. You can read a Frequently Asked Question about our meditation techniques here.
The location of these meditation sessions changes depending upon what other courses or events are happening at the time, but we put up signs to point you in the right direction. The main sign is posted on the window of our reception office (pictured below left). We change this sign according to the location that day (or to remind you that it's Sunday!), so look for this when you arrive.
We have also made some other signs to assist you in finding the right location. They'll be dotted around the path to the place where the meditation will be held that day. They have been lovingly painted with YELLOW ARROWS, so follow them! (pictured below right)
Please be aware that there will probably be a residential course running at the time of your visit, so please keep silence while at Tushita, do not enter any other Gompa where a course is taking place and try not to be late for this session! Also, while you are more than welcome to visit our library or use a vacant gompa for your private (self-guided) meditation practice, we kindly ask that you do not hang around chatting after the session as this will distrupt any residential courses that are running.
Many thanks for your mindfulness and consideration!
