This year’s meditation was at 3pm on Saturday 8th July 2017. Thank you to everyone who took part – you helped us raise over £1,300 for our work with Tibetans!
Whether you are seasoned in practising meditation or have never meditated before, join us to Meditate for Tibet!
Meditation has proven health benefits and can make you feel calmer, healthier and happier. Our free guided Body & Breath meditation by Jill Cox, a mindfulness teacher, means it couldn’t be simpler to take part – either on your own or as a group. This year’s meditation is brand new, and kindly provided by Living Mindfully. (If you enjoy the meditation, why not download their app?)
Meditate for Tibet raises vital funds for our work with Tibetans in India, Nepal and Tibet – providing essential healthcare and education and helping Tibetans to build a brighter future.
Unlike many fundraising challenges, you don’t need to have a super-fit body or travel far from home – this can be done in the comfort of your living room.
How do I take part?
Simply fill in this form to request your FREE fundraising pack and CD. You can either take part on your own or get a group together.
We hold an annual event where lots of groups and individuals meditate at the same time, but you can also take part at any time throughout the year. Our 2018 event will be announced soon. By meditating at the same time you’ll be connecting with hundreds of other people!
How can I raise money for Tibetans in need by meditating?
You can organise a group event and charge people to take part, or take part on your own and ask friends and family to sponsor you – or simply give us a donation in return for the pack.
Claire Murphy raised over £800 last year by holding a fantastic event with 108 minutes of meditation and a refreshment stall. Many others meditated on their own or with one other person and asked family and friends to sponsor them. You can go as big or small as you want.

If you would prefer not to raise sponsorship or organise an event, please give a donation in return for downloading the guided meditation.
How will I make a difference?
Currently around 130,000 Tibetans live in exile from Tibet, mainly in India and Nepal.
Many of these Tibetans – as well as those inside Tibet – are in desperate need of education, healthcare and a sustainable future. You can help make this happen.
What your donation can do:
- £15 will pay for a month’s food for an elderly Tibetan refugee in India or Nepal
- £30 will help support a Tibetan ex-political prisoner to start a new life
- £60 will provide life-saving emergency aid for a new mother in a remote area of Tibet
- £200 will help fund a physiotherapist for disabled Tibetan children
So don’t delay – sign up now!
Penpa is an elderly Tibetan living in Rajpur, India. The money raised from Meditate for Tibet last year meant we could give Penpa a monthly stipend for his food, medicine and accommodation, keeping him secure and comfortable in his old age.
Penpa says “I am happy here and feeling fine. I have some eyesight problems but my room is clean and comfortable and I don’t have to worry about food or medicine. Thank you Tibet Relief Fund!”
