Jampel Kadampa Buddhist Centre is a place for the people of Canterbury and Kent, dedicated to offering the opportunity to develop lasting mental peace through meditation and related practices. Everyone is welcome to take as much or as little as they wish from what is on offer.
We have an exciting spiritual programme for all levels of interest through courses, classes and retreats, based on the books and teachings of renown Buddhist Master, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. The programme offers scientific methods for improving our daily lives and human nature through developing the capacity of our mind. The year-round programme of meditation courses and retreats caters for people at all levels from complete beginners to advanced practitioners.
Our programme is open to everyone – young, old, working, retired, singles, couples, and families. The centre is dedicated to world peace and welcomes people from all faiths, and those who do not subscribe to any faith – you do not have to be a Buddhist to take part in the programme or to benefit from it. There is a beautiful meditation room, bookshop and library which everyone is welcome to enjoy.
