Stockport: Wednesday Evening Meditation Group


Wednesday Evening Meditation Group

Why Meditate?
Meditation has become widely accepted for its health benefits which include:

  • ability to reduce one's stress levels
  • pulling oneself out of depression
  • overcoming sleep problems

Keep your inspiration to meditate going, by becoming part of a group that meditates regularly with a Buddhist monk and in the quiet and conducive atmosphere of a meditation centre. Those with an interest specifically in Buddhism have the opportunity to further their knowledge at talks and retreats run from time to time by the group. Students under 16 may be accepted with parental consent.

Regular meditation group
The group meets weekly, on Wednesday evenings from 7.30-8.45 p.m. at 233a Edgeley Road, Stockport SK3 0TL. The group will meditate together for 30-40 minutes and then have a break together with tea and snacks provided.

What does it cost?
A minimum contribution of £5.00 (per person, per visit) towards renovation and heating of the meditation centre would be appreciated (cash please, some change available)

What do I need to bring?
Wear modest, loose clothes comfortable for meditation and you may like to bring your own meditation cushion if the chairs or mats provided at the centre are not sufficiently comfortable for you.

How can I join?
It is not obligatory to enroll. You can just turn up on the day and feel free to bring friends. Leaving your email address on the attendance list will allow you to be kept up to date with any breaks in the group activity and also to be informed of any talks and retreats organized by the group. If however, you would prefer to have confirmation that the group is meeting on the first date of your planned visit, please send an email to stockport.meditation [at] This will also help the organizers estimate numbers for catering and setting out the meditation hall.
