About Us


Leeds Buddhist Centre is a community of friends exploring the Buddhist Path, including mindfulness, meditation, bodywork and Buddhist teachings, cultivating clarity, kindness, energy, sensitivity, and calmness.

We run weekly drop-in sessions for newcomers and weekly sangha nights for regulars, plus meditation drop-ins and other events, including day retreats. 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).

The centre is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community. We are a new tradition, drawing from different Buddhist traditions and presenting the Buddha’s teachings in a way that is accessible to many of us in the west.

Please browse our pages or, if you prefer, you can look at our calendar of classes, retreats and events.
