Meditation & Buddhism in the Dorchester Meditation Group

If you are interested in learning about meditation and live near  Dorchester, Weymouth or Yeovil then why not consider popping along and joining us for a session.

Shambhala Buddhism is an international community of practitioners of meditation founded by the late Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and now under the guidance of his son, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

The Dorchester Shambhala Buddhist Meditation Group offers weekly instruction and on-going guidance in the practice of sitting meditation in a group format. We act as a link to other centres and retreat facilities offering further in-depth opportunities for practice and study allowing people to further explore the path of meditation and how it relates to their life. We also have a small library of books on the subjects of meditation, Buddhism and Shambhala that are loaned out to regular attenders free of charge.
