Be light, be positive

September 7 ¦ 14 ¦ 28 ¦ October 5 ¦ no class on 12 ¦ 19 ¦ 26 

It’s difficult to be positive when you’re feeling anxious, irritated, or stressed, yet these experiences are far too common in our hectic world. Mindfulness and meditation are proven methods to discover the underlying causes of all your negative states of mind and replace them with positive and beneficial states of mind instead. On this course learn how you can free yourself from the harmful effects of negativity and become relaxed, positive and confident in your everyday activities.

No class on October 12

Free your Mind

November 2 ¦ 9 ¦ 16¦ 23 ¦ 30 ¦ December 7 ¦ 14

By learning to identify negative states of mind such as anxiety, worry and anger, we can gradually reduce their hold over us and allow our good qualities to shine through. On this course we will discover the joy that comes from freeing our self from these limiting states of mind,and finding true happiness and wellbeing from within.

Plenty of free parking is available on the Dogsthorpe Rd and the surrounding streets. Please park carefully with consideration for our neighbours. Thank you


The community areas of the centre are all on the ground floor. There is a smooth path accessible through the gate on the corner of Dogsthorpe Road and Woodbyth Road leading to the front door. There is one small, curved step to the door, one small up-and-over door sill into the porch and another into the hallway. Each step is no higher than 4 inches (10cm). The doors can be opened wide enough to easily accommodate someone in a wheelchair. We are planning to make a removable ramp to avoid the need to be pushed over the steps and currently have one ramp which fits into the porch. In the interim we ask that, if you have them, please bring any portable ramps of your own to assist you over the steps. Once in the hallway, all areas of the centre are accessible. There is room for a wheelchair to fit face-on to the toilet to facilitate forward transfers.

We meditate on straight-backed conference-style chairs and there are cushions on which you can rest your feet to make yourself comfortable. The meditation room is fully accessible with plenty of room for a wheelchair.

If you have any other queries please contact us at the centre. We are happy to help you in any way we can.


We have a bookshop selling meditation books and CDs. You are welcome to make purchases during the course. We accept cash, card payments and cheques.
