About the class

We meet every Tuesday evening. Doors open at 7.15pm and the session starts at 7.30pm in the Millbridge Room, Maidenhead Yard, Hertford, SG14 1PT (opposite the Hertford Theatre). It's set back from the main road, between the take-away and Martins newsagents. The building is a Victorian seed warehouse formerly used by McMullens, the brewers.

Parking is sometimes available in the street, otherwise there is a car park off St. Andrew Street, next to the back of the Castle, and also the multi story car park off Gascoyne Way. Both are free in the evenings. It is also a short walk from Hertford East, and Hertford North train stations.
Everyone (including newcomers, and anyone just curious in finding out more) is very welcome to come to our classes; you do not need to think of yourself as a Buddhist to listen to the Buddha’s teachings (the Dharma) or to meditate. Our developing Resources page contains some introductory information on Buddhism and meditation as well as a list of recommended books for newcomers and not so newcomers and all kinds of other useful information.
As you enter there will be somewhere to leave your shoes and outdoor clothing. There will also be a box for a donation towards the hire of the room and other overheads. The suggested donation for the evening is £5. If you cannot afford £5 that is fine, just pay what you can afford.
The content of each evening will vary from week to week but there will always be a session of meditation with instruction and an explanation of some aspect of the Buddha’s teachings. There will also be plenty of time to ask questions and meet others over a cup of tea and maybe even a biscuit or two.
No special clothing or equipment is required; mats, cushions, stools and chairs will be provided. We would suggest that you dress modestly and comfortably and possibly refrain from eating too heavily beforehand and this can be a recipe for a very dozy period of meditation.
