Welcome to the Richmond Mindfulness Meditation Group.
We meet weekly on Wednesday evenings to practice Buddhist meditation. (See When we meet page for dates)
The Group is inspired by and associated with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh’s Community of Interbeing and with the Insight Meditation tradition of Gaia House.
We aspire to bring mindfulness, concentration, and insight to daily living. During our meetings we practice guided meditation, walking meditation and silent sitting meditation. We also share readings from a wide range of Buddhist and other spiritual teachers. There is an opportunity for “mindful speaking” in which we communicate with compassionate listening and loving speech. Our meetings finish with tea. (See Our practice pages for more details of what we do).
We have recently been enjoying substantially increased demand to attend our meetings and, regrettably the capacity of our venue means that we are not able to accept any further new members for the next few weeks. You can email us to join our waiting list or check back here regularly for an update.
There is no charge for attending meditation evenings but donations are accepted towards running costs. Please make contact by email or telephone before attending for the first time.
We are a friendly, inclusive group, founded in 1997, with both Buddhist and non-Buddhist members. We follow the principles set out on our Guiding Principles page which encapsulate what we value about our Group. For the avoidance of doubt, we are neither a therapeutic group nor a stress reduction group.
