If, lately, you have been feeling like you need to practice a relaxation technique, or find some peace of mind and make it a regular part of your life, why not try meditation? Meditation is a way to achieve calm and concentration which has been tried and tested for many years. At the Millbridge Room in Maidenhead Yard we practice meditation techniques that were taught by the Buddha in India over 2,500 years ago. Yet these same practices are just as effective today as they were then. Regular practice of the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Development of Loving Kindness will enable you to stay calm, feel less stressed, be more patient and more understanding of others.

We do not seek to change you - if you practice meditation you will change yourself. Friends may say that you are different, that you have changed for the better. Meditation will provide you with a means to grow and develop, perhaps releasing previously unrealised talents, perhaps even changing your life. So meditation is best practised in contact with a society or Sangha who can offer you the essential support to continue and develop your practice.

At the Hertford Buddhist Sangha we have strong links with the Triratna Buddhist Community at nearby Triratna Buddhist centres, and especially with the Cambridge Buddhist Centre and the London Buddhist Centre which both offer a full and varied programme for anyone interested in meditation and Buddhism.
