About Us


Facebook Main Page: https://www.facebook.com/MeditationSoc

Facebook Year Group 2020/21: https://www.facebook.com/groups/meditationsoc2020

Aims and Objectives:

  1. To provide members with the tools and tips they need to practise meditation, and to benefit from this practise.
  2. To hold weekly group meditation sessions.
  3. To have regular events/socials which members can attend.

The Meditation Society aims to offer anyone the tools they need, through meditation, to cultivate a happier, more compassionate and less stressful life.

Our face-to-face sessions on Monday evenings aim to be mindfulness-based, beginner-friendly and varied in content. These usually consist of 2-3 student-led guided meditations. The guided meditations are based upon well-known sources, such as the online meditation platform ‘Headspace’, Mindfulness CDs, as well as books given to us by local Buddhist monasteries or temples.

We invite various teachers from the wider Exeter community to guide one-off sessions, such as monks from local Buddhist monasteries as well as therapists from Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction professions.

We believe that the sessions could be of benefit to anyone, no matter his or her background or faith. We are committed to the cultivation of a warm and welcoming atmosphere.


We sometimes have regular (typically, fortnightly) socials that range from meals, to nights out under the stars, to walks in Exeter’s glorious landscape.

The society currently has over 30 books that have been donated by members; these can be borrowed at any time throughout the year. A list of the books can be found on our Facebook page under Files.
