7:00pm to 8:30pm.  

WHERE: To be held in the South Wing of the Eric Liddell Community Centre in Edinburgh.  The address is 15 Morningside Rd, Edinburgh EH10 4DP. The South Wing is on the ground floor, turning right before you get to reception and then immediately on the right.

PARKING: There is street parking around the centre but no dedicated car park. It can take a while to find parking, so please give yourself some time if coming by car.  

BE EARLY: Please give yourself plenty of time for traffic issues and to find parking. Classes start promptly at 7pm and we will be getting into a meditation pretty quickly after the start. Please, please don’t be late, but if you are then please be as quiet as possible as you enter the room.

DO WE SIT ON THE FLOOR?: Not unless you want to. There are chairs provided.  Not terribly comfortable but not too uncomfortable either. Some people bring a cushion for extra comfort.

DRESS: Comfortable clothes.  The building is heated but is also old and sometimes takes a bit of time to get up to temperature so bring a layer or two in case you get chilly.

NO RSVP: You don’t need to tell us you’re coming.  Just come.  However, if you don’t already get our emails, sign up here to get updates, reminders, and other meditation related content

WHAT IF I CAN’T COME TO THE FIRST CLASS?: You don’t have to come to the whole series.  If you can only make classes from the fourth one on, please come.  Each week we’ll cover a different aspect of meditation and although the classes do build on each other they are also intended to be completely self-contained.

WHAT LEVEL IS THIS FOR?: People with no experience, people with some experience, people with decades of experience. If you’ve never done it before we will go over the basics – which is always of benefit to everyone including the most experienced.
