Exploring Meditation Workshop

This one day seminar will include talks, led meditations, workshops and the opportunity to ask questions.



Pasannamati grew up in Birmingham and has been a practising Buddhist for 13 years. She was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2009, where she was given her name.

She has experience of teaching meditation and leads retreats in the UK and Poland. She still lives in the Midlands, where she works as a teacher.

She practices within the Triratna Buddhist community, which was founded in the UK in the 1960s and has continued to grow into a vibrant and diverse movement with centres and groups worldwide.
This tradition emphasises the importance of the ideals of enlightenment, the Buddha’s teaching and community, and the need for Buddhism to renew itself in the modern world.

How our introductory courses work

A tutor presents philosophical ideas, and leads a discussion based on what arises in the group. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge and experience. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.
