Bodhisattva Kadampa Buddhist Meditation Centre, based in Brighton, East Sussex, is a special place of tranquility, rest, reflection and friendship. It is home to an international Kadampa Buddhist community of 30 lay and ordained residents who share a similar wish to make their lives meaningful by finding lasting peace and happiness from within and helping others to do the same.
The buddhist centre is open to the public and offers a variety of buddhist meditation classes, day courses, and weekend meditation retreats that are suitable for everyone - both beginners and more experienced meditators. For those attending our weekend courses we also offer comfortable single, twin, and dormitory accommodation with recently upgraded facilities.
The centre is located within two acres of quiet leafy grounds and is a haven of peace in the city of Brighton. We are just a few minutes walk from local parks and the sea front and a ten minute drive from the South Downs National Park – an area of protected countryside and natural beauty. There is something here for everyone so come and visit!
Our World Peace Café is open from Tuesday to Saturday where people can relax, meet with friends and enjoy delicious light lunches and home-made cakes in a peaceful setting. During café hours there is a large meditation room available for the public to use for quiet contemplation and meditation.
