About Us

 

Leeds Buddhist Centre is a group of friends exploring mindfulness, meditation, bodywork and Buddhist teachings. Cultivating clarity, calmness, sensitivity and kindness.

We run weekly drop-in sessions for newcomers and weekly sangha nights for regulars, plus meditation drop-ins and other events. Click the link for more information.

Keep up to date with what is happening by joining our mailing list (complete the box at the bottom of the page).
