Welcome to the Colchester Buddhist Centre

If you are visiting to find details of our introductory meditation and Buddhism classes then please see our meditation classes page.

The Colchester Buddhist Centre was opened in 1998 to offer meditation and Buddhism to the people of Colchester and the surrounding area.

Classes are led by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order who are experienced in providing meditation instruction to people of all ages and backgrounds. Introductory Classes (Wednesday evening and Friday lunchtimes) are welcoming and informal and no experience is necessary - simply turn up!

Whether you are looking for a little more peace of mind and inner calm or, perhaps, you want to pursue an interest in Buddhism further, there are meditation classes, study groups, day and weekend retreats run by the Colchester Buddhist Centre which will support you.

For 2014 the Centre opening hours have changed, please see 'contact us'
