Also @ the Centre

The Bristol Buddhist Centre is a place for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community to share and practise the teachings of the Buddha.  A key part of this is creating Sangha, a network of spiritual friendships which is in itself a spiritual practice, as well as supporting those who want to take up Buddhist practice.

In order to facilitate this work we carry out a range of activities, to complement our Dharma programme, including hiring out our lovely building to others at certain times to support our work.

Amongst our supporting activities are

  • The Healing Rooms – where complementary therapists, some of whom are Order members, offer a range of treatments from Massage to Hypnotherapy
  • Schools – our schools Co-ordinator, Karunavapi, visits schools and hosts school visits here to help schools bring the Dharma to life for children
  • Shop – we have a small bookshop open at class times with books on Buddhism and meditation
  • Yoga and Qi Gong – committed teachers use our beautiful shrine room space to offer a range of classes.
  • Events run by the Tara Sanctuary & Natural Burial Ground project, Seed of Peace, and others.

These events are not part of the dana economy; there’s a charge to attend.
