SCHOOL/COLLEGE VISITS

What to expect at a school visit:

The teacher will explain Buddha’s life story, guide a meditation, talk about community, ritual, ordination.  

Questions can be asked throughout.

You can either visit us here at the Centre or we will come to your school/college.

The event is usually 1 hour long.

We have found these talks very successful with both the students and staff.

We do request a £1 charge per student + travel to cover our costs as we are a charity (no. 1038999)

If you would like more information or to arrange a visit you can either email us on info@kmcmanchester.org or call 0161 861 7012

We do make a charge for our visits as we are a charity (no. 1038999).  These are based on the length of the talk, numbers attending and the funding status of the visiting organisation.

If you were thinking of a short meditation for staff well-being we would recommend our lunchtime meditations which are open to everyone.  These are £3 per person and you can just drop in.  We have a large space so are able to cater for larger groups at these classes if you can email or call to let us know you will be coming along so we can set-up the space appropriately.  We are also happy to run one-off half hour meditations outside of this if that is preferable.
