For more than 30 years the Norwich Buddhist Centre has been teaching Meditation, Buddhism and Yoga in the heart of the city.
The centre is run by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order whose aim is to make the teachings of Buddhism available in the modern world.

To take up meditation is to introduce a powerful force for change in your life. If you change your mind then the world changes too. Meditation can be the beginning of life's greatest adventure.

Buddhism is a tradition of teaching and practice that helps people to unfold the inner riches of love, wisdom, and energy that lie within us all. It is a treasure house of guidance and help for those who wish to develop ever higher levels of being and consciousness.

Our practice and teaching of yoga takes place within a context of Buddhism, which emphasises an integration of awareness and altruism leading to positive mental states.

Going on a retreat is a great opportunity to leave behind the concerns and demands of your everyday routine. It gives you time and space for meditation and a chance to relax, open up and rejuvenate.
