Learn To Meditate

We welcome all visitors, including those new to Buddhism. Come one evening as a guest and leave as a friend.

Transform Your Mind

Develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity and a calm seeing of the true nature of things.

A Vibrant Community

Our community is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community, a non-sectarian international Buddhist network of public centres, communities, ethical businesses and social projects.

We offer classes on meditation and buddhism on an ongoing basis. We also offer courses which focus on specific topics for a limited time duration, and retreats which give participants an opportunity to focus more deeply on meditation, Buddhist teachings, and spiritual friendship.

Funded by Generosity

All of our classes are offered for free.  While our team of volunteers is happy to lead classes, there are certain costs associated with running our programs.

The word dāna means generosity, and is a central Buddhist principle and practice. If you find our programs helpful, and have the means to do so, we would be grateful for any dāna you wish to give. We are a registered charity, and would be happy to provide a tax receipt for your support.
