Weekly Mindfulness Drop-in Sessions

We offer weekly guided drop-in sessions, providing instruction in two traditional forms of meditation: The Mindfulness of Breathing (to develop focus and concentration) and The Metta Bhavana (to become more emotionally flexible and robust). Our sessions run during term-time only; however the Buddhist Centre in Roath offers weekly Mindfulness Drop-In sessions all year round - please follow the link below for more details:

What to expect from a workshop

Our co-curricular workshops are designed to be informative, self-help sessions that encourage you to develop better employment skills, as you share and learn from each other in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
