What’s on at the Monastery? Alongside our regular open days, we also run an exciting programme of events, activities, talks, concerts and performances. Use the search bar below to discover what's on and what's coming soon at The Monastery.

The Monastery aims to be Open Every Day between 11am- 4pm (except Saturdays) with free entry & free parking. Visitors are most welcome to call in between 11 and 4pm and visit the Heritage Corner but we cannot guarantee that the Great Nave will always be available.

Special Heritage & Visitor Open Days are held all year round on every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday when the Great Nave, Café & Shop are usually open between 11 and 4pm. Tours and talks can also be pre-booked on these open days. Please note, there will be no access to the Nave on Sunday 23rd June due to the Music Action International Concert (our Sunday Taste of The Monastery Tour in June will take place on Sunday June 30th). The Friary and Victorian Pantry will remain open as usual on these days.

A regular programme of community, health, well-being and family activities is also available for everyone to enjoy. Our affordable Community Rooms can be pre-booked for use 7 days of the week between 9am and 5.30pm.

Reserve your place with Shahida on 07402 305 690 Or via fb: “Mantra Transmission and Meditation with Shahida”.

Shahida also offers 1:1 Mantra Therapy Sessions and Intensives at The Monastery.

This is a powerful 3-hour Mantra Meditation Transmission Circle in which we gather together and Meditate working with Mantra’s and using a specific method.
This enables the possibility for those attending to have the deepest most profound experiences.


“…I had such a beautiful experience of being a wave in the Divine Ocean…”

(Full Testimonial is on my fb page)

“Hi Shahida, I just want to let you know how amazing and deep my experience was in the circle last night. I really felt a very deep connection and the wave of love and peace I felt was unbelievable. I’m also amazed and so pleased that my sore shoulder is feeling much much better today.thank you so much xxxx I love you xx”

Below is a description of the method we will use:

“In this method we create a small and intimate circle of women who sing the mantras. Then we place women in the center who just sit quietly and receive the mantras. In the centre the effect of the mantras is most concentrated and the depth of meditation that can be reached is utterly amazing. We create a very powerful Presence of Meditation that otherwise would be difficult to create.

The Mantra Transmission Circle is the most powerful meditation method that I know. It links up the consciousness of everyone in the circle through Mantra to help the women in the middle to go beyond the limits of their own consciousness. In this process, the persons in middle can experience a tremendous expansion, deepening and purification of consciousness that is vastly beyond the state consciousness of any single person present. No other method does this.
This method represents the very essence of friends helping each other to find liberation.”.

(Method text given by my Beloved Teacher, Andreas Mamet and edited by me)

We will be seated on chairs for 1.5hours, please wear something comfortable that would enable you to relax into meditation. Also bring meditation cushions, blankets or anything else to support you feel comfortable!

The Pantry will have available drinks you can buy however if you prefer to bring your own, please bring something to drink as throats can feel dry! The Circle costs £20 and is from 12-3pm.
