Cobham Meditation Community

The Cobham Meditation Community meets on Thursday evenings for Buddhist meditation and teachings. New members, visitors and complete beginners to meditation are very welcome. The emphasis is on understanding how to put the principles of meditation into practice in our daily lives. We study some Buddhist texts but you don’t need to be Buddhist to attend or benefit. The focus is on compassion for ourselves and others, and flowing more smoothly through life.

Venue: Rubin Room, West Horsley Village Hall, 95 The St, West Horsley, Leatherhead KT24 6DD. Use the side entrance, on the right hand side of the building.  The Rubin room is just inside that entrance, immediately on the right. Here’s a map
Time: 8pm-9pm. You are welcome to arrive from 7.40pm for a cup of tea and conversation.
Please bring: A cushion if you prefer to sit on the floor, and a notebook and pen if you’d like to make notes on the teachings. Chairs are provided.
Donations: Donations are welcome and are used as offerings to the teacher, to cover the cost of the venue, and to fund future meditation retreats.
Contact: cobham.meditation@gmail.com and there is a closed group on Facebook.
