An oasis of calm in a busy city
Helping to transform life through Meditation, Buddhism, Mindfulness and Yoga.
At Brighton Buddhist Centre we teach meditation and Buddhism in a way that is relevant to contemporary life.
We are inspired to create an atmosphere which is conducive to spiritual practice: to calm, to friendship and to insight.
We are part of Triratna, an International Buddhist Movement.
The Centre is open every day for drop-in meditation and yoga and classes. No need to book in advance. Online early morning meditations and weekly pujas continue to be offered.
We also offer a range of courses which can be booked here on the website or over the phone or in-person at our reception desk.
