The Colchester Buddhist Centre is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community and teach meditation and Buddhism in a way that is relevant to contemporary life.
Colchester Buddhist Centre is at the heart of a thriving, friendly community of practicing Buddhists. The Centre is run by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, who teach and practice a non-sectarian style of Buddhism, suitable for people living in the contemporary Western world.
We run regular classes for newcomers to Buddhism and meditation, as well as a programme of other classes, events, retreats, festivals and study groups for those with more experience.
We also host yoga classes.
Triratna is a worldwide movement of men and women living by Buddha's teachings in the conditions of the modern world. Founded in 1967 by Urgyen Sangharakshita, neither monastic nor lay, we are simply Buddhists at varying stages of commitment and understanding.
