Come to Discover What Meditation Is
Find peace and calm in the world and within oneself, with our offering of meditative practices for all levels of practitioners at Jamyang Buddhist Centre.
Meditation helps keep you in the moment and provides physical and mental health benefits, too. It is perfect for those looking for practical tools to help them bring greater contentment and peace of mind into daily life.
Jamyang London Buddhist Centre hosts weekly drop-in sessions on Buddhist and Mindfulness Meditation. These meditation sessions provide a much-needed respite from the hustle and bustle of city life, allowing individuals to find inner peace and tranquillity. Whether you are seeking solace, stress relief, or simply a moment of stillness, these meditations offer a valuable opportunity to cultivate a sense of well-being in the midst of our fast-paced world.
By creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, these meditation sessions encourage individuals from all walks of life to come together and embark on a journey of self-discovery and mindfulness. These meditations are for everyone, regardless of their religious or cultural background.
Additionally, we host also the MBSR Mindfulness for Stress Reduction course led by the London Centre for Mindfulness.
Below is an overview of all the meditation courses and drop – in sessions at Jamyang London Buddhist Centre.

Mindfulness for Stress Reduction (MBSR) at Jamyang London Buddhist Centre
Our Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course is closely linked with Bangor University and SLAM. The course follows the strict guidelines set out by Jon Kabat Zinn and the model created by Oxford Mindfulness Centre run by Mark Williams.
This well-tested and authenticated 8-week programme has been carefully formulated to enable participants to learn more about their thinking patterns and behaviour while learning practical skills to manage stress and develop greater mental resilience. The evidence base shows significant positive effects amongst participants suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, MS, mild anxiety disorder, stress, psoriasis and cancer.
We frequently organise MBSR seasonal courses at Jamyang Buddhist Centre. For further information, please feel free to get in touch with the course facilitator Jane Sill at [email protected]
