Next Intro Course starts on Monday 23 January 2023.

Whether you’re looking to find a little peace, enrich your life or find a meaningful spiritual path, you’ll find something here for you.

Our Intro Course provides you with an exploration of Buddhist practice in daily life, as well as the transformative nature of meditation. Do sign up to the next one!

Meditation for Beginners is a great place to start your meditation journey, familiarise yourself with the basics, and build up a wealth of meditation experience to get you off on your journey.

If you’re between 18 and 35 then drop by one of our Bristol Young Buddhists events to say ‘hi’ and find out what we are about.

We’re keen to develop a culture of generosity so there is no set charge for these sessions, but we invite you to give what you can to keep us sharing Buddhism and meditation for those following in your footsteps!

Intro Courses & Events

Uncover genuine ease, contentment and meaning in life through exploring profound yet simple teachings. Come together with others to learn, discuss and discover the means to uncover how to become the change you want to see. No experience of Buddhism or meditation required.

Bristol Young Buddhists

If you’re aged 18 – 35 then come and meet other Buddhists or ‘Buddhist curious’ people around your age. Our main event is the first Friday of the month! We hold socials / meet ups in between.

Meditation for Beginners

A great way to sample meditation for the first time or to get refreshing support and clarity to help you set up a regular practice.

Mindful Yoga

A mindful yoga practice focusing on the body and sensations (somatic awareness) with meditative, dynamic sequences and breath work. Suitable for all levels of experience.


Through sitting, standing and mindful movements, we learn how to align the body to promote a relaxed alert state, regulate and calm the mind, meet and let go of blockages to presence and connect with emptiness.

Inclusivity & Access

Sometimes it can be useful to practice in a context with people who have had similar experiences within society. Or you may want to see what we offer to help people access Buddhism and our Centre (or give us feedback!)
