Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre - Brighton

Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC), based in Brighton, East Sussex, is a special place of tranquility, rest and reflection. Bodhisattva KMC is part of the New Kadampa Tradition, the International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) and is home to an international Kadampa Buddhist community who share a wish to make their lives meaningful by finding lasting peace and happiness from within and helping others to do the same.

The Meditation Centre is open to the public and offers a variety of meditation & mindfulness classes, in depth Buddhist study programmes, day courses, and weekend meditation retreats that are suitable for beginners and more experienced meditators. For those attending our weekend courses, we also offer comfortable single, twin, and dormitory accommodation.

Peace Garden & location – 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 short 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!

World Peace Cafe offers a delicious range of home-made vegetarian dishes, including quiches, salads and heart-warming soups, as well as freshly ground coffee and yummy cake – all served by our friendly staff.
