In just a few weeks we will be beginning our fall Introductory course Click here to learn more. This eight-week series of sessions is geared for those who have little or no experience with meditation or for those who feel their practice has lapsed and they would like to re-enter the process again. We begin with shorter meditation periods with lots of room for questions and discussion. Several different styles of meditation will be introduced as well as instruction in how to incorporate mindful awareness into everyday living. 

Monadnock Mindfulness,

Since 2002 we have provided our community a quiet environment to learn and practice mindfulness, the art of bringing one’s full attention to the present moment. Cultivating this practice helps to develop a calm and openhearted approach to living. The practice of mindfulness enhances clarity, deepening our understanding of self and others while opening the capacity to make a positive difference in the world around us.

To get in touch just email 

Open five times a week, we welcome over 1000 people a year.

Basic instruction is provided for all levels of experience with meditation. 

Sessions are one hour with the first 45 minutes spent in meditation, followed by a 15 minute period for optional discussion.

Chairs, cushions and benches are provided. 

There are no fees, though donations are welcomed as we are a non-profit organization.
