Sangha Events

Sangha Events

If you’re familiar with the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana practices and are interested in practising in Triratna, just come along! Our sangha events are open to anyone who has done an Intro Course (at any time), or has been attending our introductory classes for a number of months (chat to us if you have any queries!)

We’re keen to develop a culture of generosity and availability to all, so there is no set charge for these sessions – but we’ll invite you to give what you can. We rely on your financial gifts to keep the Centre going. It is because of people’s generosity in the past that we can enjoy the Centre and the Buddha’s teachings today. Do keep this going please do give. We hope you’ll be able to contribute appropriately to the running costs of the centre so more people can benefit and the Sangha can grow. What would help us even more, is rather than donate each time you come along, support the centre with a monthly direct debit please give generously!

Bristol Young Buddhists

A monthly core event, as well as socials and meet ups. For those aged 35 and under.

A wider range of topics are covered. Hear about the Buddha’s teachings, learn to meditate and have a good old chat.

Going Deeper in Meditation (Advanced Class)

Explore the reaches of experience through meditation. A chance to shine a spotlight on your inner world and opportunities to discuss with others. For those with 3 or more years’ experience of meditation within a Triratna context.


Meditation – Silent and Simple Practice Evenings

A meditation space for those in the Sangha (community) who can sit in meditation for 50mins (unled).

Mindful Yoga

This accessible and adaptable yoga class is suitable for all levels. A great way to embody mindfulness.


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.


Sangha Meditation Class (Intermediate Level)

Wednesday lunchtime class for the Sangha (community) / anyone who has done an Introductory Course.

Deepen your practice, explore the body, see the mind. Teaching and meditation followed by optional discussion.

Sangha Night

Our main event of the week! A opportunity for all to come together to practice, hear teachings and share experiences. Tuesday evenings from 7:30 until 9:30pm. Open to all those who have done an Introductory Course with us.

Sangha Works

Work as practice. Join us on Wednesdays from 3pm-5pm to work together and explore a different way of practising.

Inclusivity and Access

We are working to make our centre as welcoming as possible to everyone. It can also sometimes be useful to practice in a context with people who have had similar experiences within society. If you think this might apply to you… then do take a look!
