Why Meditate?

Meditation enables you to unwind, relax, let go of worry and improve your overall sense of wellbeing. Through training in meditation it’s possible to gradually reduce and eliminate the negative states of mind that cause our unhappiness and replace them with positive, peaceful states.

We hold classes in a number of locations throughout Perth, including our Centre in East Fremantle. These classes are suitable for all levels of interest and experience, from simple guided meditations through to in-depth Buddhist studies.

What to Expect at a Class

Learn practical methods to solve the problems we face in daily life. Classes include two guided meditations and a teaching from one of our qualified teachers, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Everybody is welcome. No experience is necessary.
