Buddhist Meditation Society

Student Life

The Buddhist Meditation Society provides students with the opportunity to take part in and learn about meditation within the New Kadampa Buddhist tradition. Through practising meditation and mindfulness, as well as applying Buddhist insights to our daily lives, we can learn to maintain a peaceful and productive mind and outlook.

The benefits of meditation are endless, and as a society we strive to spread the happiness. At both the Student's Union and the University of Southampton, we encourage free speech and the open exchange of ideas.

In this way, we welcome peaceful debate of issues within our clubs and societies. We do not however support acts or words that encourage violence or hatred, and are firmly against those who use these methods to further their personal and political aims. We are a mediation society primarily and hold no political links to any particular organisation.

Our regular classes are on Wednesdays (5-6pm) on Highfield Campus. For room locations each week, lease join our Facebook page (/www.facebook.com/groups/BuddhistMeditationSoc) or email us to recieve a weekly newsletter (buddhistmeditationsoc@soton.ac.uk).

Everyone is welcome, so come along and give it a try!.
