meditation retreats or classes for free

Should a meditation class be free?

I was contacted recently by someone who wanted to find out more about the meditation class I teach in London, and he really got me thinking about this issue of whether mindfulness meditation should be taught for free. He said he’d been looking all over the internet for somewhere to learn mindfulness and come across all the “free meditation classes” that are “associated with religions” and all the “really expensive medical sounding ones” aimed at reducing stress.
