What we do

IN-person and ONLINE Meditation classes (Livestream only)

As a registered charity KMC Edinburgh has been benefiting the people of Edinburgh and the East Coast for over 20 years providing authentic and practical meditation courses across the region.

In 2018 we moved to a new premise on Leith Walk, creating a beautiful meditation hall, cafe and bookshop, providing a dedicated space for the development of inner peace. We hope you may visit us here and experience the stillness and peace of this special place, dedicated to world peace.

None of us ever choose to have painful feelings. If we could, we would never have them. Instead they just barge into our mind, destroy our peace and happiness, bully and intimidate us, and try to overwhelm us. That’s because they think we don’t have a choice – and usually neither do we!

This 4 week course aims to give us choice. It will help us to get the better of our negative feelings. We can learn where they come from and how to reduce and abandon them. By responding differently to our negative emotions we can divert our energy to happier, more positive and rewarding states of mind.

The course is designed sequentially, but you can join at any time. In-person and online.

Establishing a regular meditation practice can seem overwhelming at first. Do I need any special equipment? How long should I meditate for? What’s the goal exactly? What about those apps – are they any good?

Get the answers to all these questions and more at our Learn to Meditate workshop. Buddhist teacher Gen Wangmo will teach proven strategies for calming the mind, reducing stress, and finding peace wherever you are.
