About The Group

We are a friendly independent Buddhist meditation group meeting weekly on Thursday nights at 7:30pm in Birdwood House, Totnes.

We have a number of teachers who regularly lead the evening, giving some meditation instruction and Dharma (the Buddha’s) teachings. We have close links with Gaia House, and many of our teachers also teach there.

Whilst we follow the Buddhist tradition, we are not closely linked to any particular school of Buddhism, and our teachers come from many different backgrounds (Thai Forest, Theravada, Vipassana, Zen, Tibetan etc….)

The evening begins with some chanting, followed by 40 minutes meditation, some teaching and discussion – often ending with a short meditation and/or some more chanting.

Newcomers are always welcome. Please bring your own cushion or bench if you prefer to sit on the ground.

We suggest a donation of £3 to £5 to help pay for the costs of the room and teachers’ dana.
