The Monday sitting group will continue through the rest of 2021 to meet mainly online via Zoom, but there will be one meeting each month held at the Friends Meeting House (FMH), St Giles, Oxford — see below.

The Monday Sitting Group welcomes experienced and beginning practitioners alike, and no booking is necessary. An experienced meditation teacher leads the group each week: there is a guided meditation followed by teaching, questions and discussion.

These evenings are freely offered, with an encouragement to offer a donation (Dana) to support the livelihood of the teachers.

To receive information about the sessions, please sign up to the sitting group mailing list:

Venue: The Friends Meeting House, St Giles, Oxford OX1 3LW

Time: 7.00-8.30pm

What to Bring

Mat/blanket, bench or cushion (chairs and some cushions are available)


Autumn 2021 

The planned autumn schedule for the Monday Sitting Group up to Christmas is listed below. The meetings are from 7pm-8.30pm.  The Online meetings will use zoom. (PLEASE NOTE: The two online meetings 3rd October and 5th December will now take place on a Sunday – with Chris Cullen. We apologise for any inconvenience caused)

The meetings at Friends Meeting House will not be live-streamed, so there will be no online session on those evenings. For these in-person meetings we suggest you bring a mat, blanket, bench or cushion especially if you want to practise on the floor (chairs and some cushions are available).
