Regular meditation classes
Step out of your daily grind and into our beautiful meditation space to experience a serene and inspiring escape from your busy life. Find the inner peace that comes from expertly guided group meditations. The meditation classes are held twice each week in the sedate 18th century Georgian Drawing Room of the Grade II listed Beckenham Place Mansion which has a panoramic view of 237 acres of carefully tended gardens, lawns and flowers.
The Mansion is a decorate and graceful space that sits in natural stillness, offering an inspiring and ideal place to practice mindfulness and meditation without distraction. You will feel better, happier and more relaxed from visiting our pleasant retreat designed to bring calm, comfort and quiet.
Beckenham Place Park is being recovered for the wider community with £4.9M of Lottery funding. We are fortunate to have access to such a perfect location which enables a connection to the stillness and serenity of nature into our meditation experience in such a graceful way.
We are surrounded by transport links with four stations less than twenty minutes walk away, many buses and free parking directly outside the building. See below for details.
The Mansion has a cafe which is the centre of the growing community so we can easily continue our regular social meetups that are such a key part of the Bromley Mindfulness meditation and mindfulness community.
The sessions are zero-commitment, no need to book, regular classes where you can just turn up as it suits you in what must be one of the best locations possible for a calming and relaxing meditation and mindfulness experience.
The Mansion, originally the home of the Cator family, was built in 1760 and has been signifcantly remodelled over time. It is a Grade II listed building and is built in the Palladian style.
We are booked generally for the Drawing Room, also known as the East Room though in certain circumstances, we will locate in either the Dining Room or other rooms.
