Become a member

Becoming a member is the most economical way to enjoy all our classes, courses and retreats. If you attend classes regularly, your membership will represent substantial saving over paying for individual classes. As classes you can attend are unlimited once you have paid your monthly fee, it also provides many opportunities to deepen your meditation practice and find lasting solutions to the challenges of daily life.

KMC Reading is a registered charity #1050321 and non-profit organisation. Our centre is run largely by volunteers and all activities are dedicated to the development of peace throughout the world. Kadampa Meditation Centre Reading is your Centre! Your contribution will help us maintain a firm financial basis. Through this we can continue to offer places of peace and refuge for the people of Reading and the surrounding areas.

Pay as you go – As an alternative to membership, you can pay as you go to our classes and courses. Please see class pages for prices.

Money troubles? KMC Reading is a registered charity and our aim is to provide as many people as possible with meditations and teachings on how to solve their daily problems.  If you have a wish to attend a class and are prohibited by lack of funds please email us (info@learntomeditate.org) and we will do our best to accommodate you.
