Meditation Classes across Wirral

From week beginning the 19/4/21, we re-opened the centre for in-person classes  (limited numbers to help maintain and promote COVID safety procedures) We now have increased the in-person classes to include a Monday evening class,  a Tuesday evening Class, a Wednesday lunchtime class, a Thursday evening FP class, a Friday lunchtime class and PFWP Class on a Sunday  Please see website for details of each class. Pre-booking is required for all in-person classes so that we can provide classes to a safer number of people and in accordance with social distancing guidance. Pre-booking is required for people with a centre card or without. For those people without a centre card, you will be able to book via PayPal for classes. However, PFWP will still be a free class so no payment is required. It is important however to re-iterate that we ask everyone to register for classes using the online page for each class. We cannot encourage people to turn up at the centre without booking as we would not be able to guarantee attendance or admittance to the centre. Some information will be required to register for classes so that track and trace information can be provided should this be needed.  Kailash Buddhist Centre doors will open 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. Each attendee will be guided into the meditation room by our assistants.

The numbers are restricted due to the facilitation of social distancing and face coverings must be worn at all times. If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, there will be reserved seating within the meditation room. You must sit in this section for your own and others protection. Please do tick on the registration form if you are exempt as we will need to make the necessary arrangements to help accommodate as many people who are exempt as possible to attend. Thank you for your understanding and continued support in helping people who attend the centre keep safe and happy whilst attending.

If you have been diagnosed with Covid-19 or have developed symptoms (principally high temperature, persistent cough, loss of smell or taste among others) within the last 14 days, or, if you live with/or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed or had symptoms of Covid-19 within the last 14 days, we ask that you please do not visit the Centre.

Our classes will also continue to be streamed online so as to avoid any disappointment, apart from PFWP which will be an in-person class only.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are a work in progress but we are delighted in taking these small steps to what we hope will lead to a wider scope of attendances at the centre in the future and at the appropriate time. We are so looking forward to seeing you all in person once more.

Some of our branch class teachers

“I walked past a notice in the newsagents about meditation classes at Kailash Buddhist Centre which caught my attention. I went to the wrong venue at first but persisted and found the correct venue the following week. I remember being greeted with warmth, humour and felt immediately relaxed. I listened to my first teaching, connected with the teaching so much and have been attending ever since.

That moment at the newsagents changed my life.”

“My journey into Buddhism and Kadam Dharma was through my lifelong passion for music. I’d been following a few hardcore punk and metal bands and was particularly interested in the ‘eastern’ themes in some of the music I was listening to. Buddha just made so much sense to me. Long story short…. I read Introduction to Buddhism and ended up at Sue’s class in Hoylake. Venerable Geshe-la’s teachings have helped me so much over the last few years.

My main wish is to help others find true happiness through these beautiful practices.”

“On my 60th birthday, my younger daughter Kate asked me what I felt my three achievements had been in life. I replied marrying your Mum, having you and your sister, and finding Buddhism.

Finding Buddhism was 25 years ago and I have benefited every day since.”
