Hello and welcome to the online site of the Brentwood Buddhist Community. Here at our centre we offer help and support with a mixture of classes and courses, including Meditation, Qi Gong, yoga, healing and a running club. We also have the delightful Merrymeade Tea Room, serving fresh food with a sunny terrace garden to enjoy. The Mahabodhi Temple offers the healing and meditation space. We conduct fortnightly New and Full Moon ceremonies, birthday ceremonies and assist the deceased Dharma Rites.
Although our teachers are ordained Buddhists, the teachings are for everyone.
Buddhism is about taking responsibility for yourself, becoming more mindful of your actions, thought and speech and being caring and respectful to all. Forgiving those that may cause us harm or upset, learning what we need to learn from our experiences and situations as to bring us greater understanding, acceptance, tolerance, forgiveness and loving kindness. This in turn brings about emotional maturity, confidence, wisdom and compassion for all beings. There is no conditioning or indoctrination, just skillful methods to bring about the flowering of individuals.
Ten people can be practicing ten different religions, yet share the same spiritual experiences and understandings.
Everybody, regardless of age, color or creed is warmly invited to come along to our centre.
