Kalyana Mitra: The Buddhist Chaplaincy Support Group is a UK Buddhist initiative offering training in chaplaincy work for Buddhists of all traditions. Their next training course starts on 12th April and runs for seven Sundays until 1st November, in London and Birmingham. See below for information.

They write: “The aim of these training groups is to explore and share experiences that help develop skills, competencies and capabilities in offering and providing spiritual and religious support to others in a wide range of circumstances including hospitals, hospices, education, armed forces, industry etc.”

Triratna’s Amitasuri works in healthcare chaplaincy, following training with Kalyana Mitra. Hear her talk about her work (28 mins) and find out more about Buddhist chaplaincy in the UK and US.
