Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC), based in Brighton, is a special place of tranquility, rest and reflection. Bodhisattva KMC is part of the New Kadampa Tradition, the International Kadampa Buddhist Union, 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 beautiful front garden open to the public is a haven of peace in the city of Brighton. We are just a few minutes walk from local parks and the sea front.  There is something here for everyone – so come and visit!

World Peace Cafe – Choose from a delicious range of home-made vegetarian and plant-based dishes, including heart-warming Soups and hearty Chef’s Special meals. Come for a cup of freshly ground coffee, healthy Superfood Latte and home-baked cake. All is served by our friendly World Peace Café Volunteers. Exemplifying virtues, such as cherishing others through public service is central to the ethos of modern Buddhism.

Gift and bookshop – You are welcome to browse through a variety of souvenirs, gifts, greetings cards, stationary, Buddhist books, statues and meditation downloads, which we sell.

Clean Air ~ Protecting you while you meditate

Among many safety precautions we have undertaken, our Main Meditation room is equipped with a HEPA air filtration system that actively cleans the air, removing pollutants including bacteria and viruses to effectively reduce the spread of colds, flu’s and SARS-Cov-2, the cause of COVID-19.

In addition, for your safety windows are kept slightly open to improve ventilation; this means it can feel cool at times and you may want to keep your jacket on – or feel free to use one of the blankets we have available for you.

Enjoy your meditation!
