The compassion meditation group is free, suitable for beginners and is supported by Kent’s PG Community Experience Awards, the group meets at 5 pm in person and 7 pm online every Thursday. For more information email, or just turn up!

The group practices self-other compassion specifically linked to health, happiness and wellbeing. We use a secular form of traditional Tonglen meditation, designed to integrate compassion for self and other. Following meditation, refreshments are provided and there is a change to chat or ask questions.
