Chelmsford Buddhist community group

02/02/2017 About 1 minute
You are all more than welcome to come along to Chelmsford's first Triratna Buddhist Community group.

It started in November 2016 and like many other groups with this Buddhist movement because of the enthusiasm of Friends from and near Chelmsford who had attended other Triratna Centres and Groups.

The evening is devoted to the exploration of Buddhism, meditation is introduced and then practiced; this is followed by a tea break and then after that a Buddhist theme is introduced and then discussed.

It is impossible to join the group, just come and go as you please.

At present we meditate on chairs. If you have meditation equipment then feel free to bring it along.

The evening is free, however donations are welcome as it is an autonomous group. We have no sponsor!

The evening starts at 7pm and goes on though till 9.30pm.

The best way try experience Buddhism is to try it, give it a go for a month or so just to see how it impacts your life.

We meet on the first floor of the Chapter House.

I hope to meet you at the group soon.
