Bristol young Buddhists Fri 5 Feb

You can join us any time from 6:45 pm onwards if you’d like to say ‘hello’ to the other folk there.  We’ll start the evening proper at 7.00 and it will run till about 9.00 pm. We’re currently meeting via zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84991472529

We run meditation and buddhism evenings for those 35 and under. There are also walks and meet ups too. The events are set up by the Bristol Young Buddhists team and supported by an experienced Buddhist. There is a mix of meditation and talks, along with a chance to chat about yourself and your life.

This space is about making friends, growing our community, practicing meditation together and learning about Buddhism. The aim is to make Buddhism relevant to our everyday lives. So if there’s anything you want to hear about then do let us know!

There is no cost to come along, but we do ask for a donation to help keep us going.

The team is Fi, Patrick, Esme and Jamie. We would love to see you!

Any questions then do get in touch at bristolyoungbuddhists@gmail.com

Eco-crisis practice group 31 Jan


In this group we draw on the dharma to support each other as we engage with ecological issues. We seek to develop and deepen our spiritual practice in this way, opening heart and mind more fully to wisdom and compassion.

The group is open to anyone with a regular dharma practice and is facilitated by Dayajoti and Vimalavajri. So do join us if you are interested.

Imagining the Earth – Eco-Arts Cafe 5.30 – 7pm

The winter world is waking up, calling our imagination into life!
So why not join us for an Eco-Arts Cafe on zoom?

It will be in the style of the more general and very popular arts cafes  we had last year.   

We warmly invite you to come along and share with us something that imaginatively expresses your concern for the planet.  Something that you’ve created yourself,  or just something that inspires you, that speaks to your imagination.   It could be a poem or piece of writing, a picture or image, a photograph, a piece of music.  Or how about decorating your shrine, or the place where you sit at home?   Or just come along to enjoy others’ contributions.  
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t come to any of our evenings before ; and in any case the group is always open to anybody with a regular practice of the dharma so you are always welcome.    We hope that many of you in the wider sangha will want to join us – to bring something, or simply to watch, listen and enjoy!
If you’d like to bring something to the evening, please let us know a bit in advance by emailing artscafe.bristolbuddhistcentre@gmail.com

Full moon puja 28 Jan

Our January full moon puja will be dedicated to Vajrasattva, an archetypal figure associated with purity, newness, authenticity.

The date is close to the celtic festival of Imbolc so we felt that Vajrasattva would be a good way to welcome the approaching Spring.

Join us for readings, mantra and puja 7.30pm
