Buddha Book Club & Meditation Group

Run by senior teacher Lucinda Pimlott, this new monthly book club and meditation group takes place on Friday evenings and is perfect for anyone interested in exploring the core teachings of Buddhism and developing their meditation practice.

Whether you are new to Buddhism or have been practicing for a while, this group offers a supportive and engaging environment in which to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the teachings.

If you have never attended a book club before, you are in for a treat. It’s a great way to share your thoughts, connect with others on a deeper level, and expand your horizons. By reading the chosen text, you will have a foundation for the discussion and get to hear different perspectives from the group.

The meditation practice is an integral part of this session, and it will help you develop mindfulness, compassion, and insight into the nature of reality. You will receive guidance and support from the group and have the opportunity to share your experiences if you feel comfortable doing so.

In summary, this monthly session is a wonderful way to meet like-minded people, deepen your knowledge of Buddhism, and develop your meditation practice. You are welcome to join at any time, and there is no pressure to read the text, as Lucinda will give a brief summary at the beginning of the session.

What better place to try this introduction to the teachings of the Buddha and meditation than in the comfort of the studio reception at Limehouse Yoga studio.

Frequently Asked Questions

Teacher

Lucinda

The practices of yoga and meditation have been a way of life for me since 1998, although I had no idea in those early days to what extent they would profoundly change my life. It has been a journey of learning to trust that we are in exactly the right place at the right time.

I began teaching over 25 years ago, and even though in the beginning the subject was different, teaching has been my path since I left university. In 2000, I was initiated into the practice of Buddhist meditation with Goenkaji in the Vipassana tradition and since then have been taught and inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh and teachers from the Insight and Thai Forest traditions.

In 2005, my first yoga teacher, Beth Shay, took me under her wing as an apprentice. I then went on to train formally in the Anusara tradition and have been teaching yoga for 12 years. More recently, I have been practising with senior teachers in the Iyengar tradition and am grateful for the insights and guidance that all of my teachers have brought.

My classes include a mixture of flow and close attention to alignment in asana, pranayama and meditation. For me, the science of yoga can only be understood through embodiment of the teachings.
