The Bath Buddhist Group was established over forty years ago and aims to promote an interest in Buddhism and to encourage its study and
application. The group seeks to learn from the different Buddhist traditions (e.g. Zen, Theravadin, Tibetan etc) and welcomes all who are interested in Buddhist practice and teachings, whether or not
you subscribe to one particular teacher or tradition. The Group has a long tradition of welcoming newcomers and experienced meditators alike.
What the group offers
- Are you looking for an opportunity to meditate with others?
- The Thursday evening meditation group (see programme page for details) typically has two half hour periods of sitting meditation. You are welcome to come along just to
the first half hour of sitting meditation and then leave, or to stay for the whole session. You may also ask questions or share your thoughts
about Buddhist teachings and practice between 7.45 and 8.00pm.
- Occasional talks by visiting speakers (e.g. a Theravadin monk or nun) and discussion evenings (see programme for developing details)

You can meditate in a supportive environment.
