From the moment Dharma Centres of all traditions around the world began to close their doors for an indefinite period, here at The Buddhist Centre Online we’ve been thinking and talking about how we might promote and support a sense of community among all who practise in Triratna and beyond.

Sessions will last for 45 minutes. They won’t be guided meditations – just bring your own practice and sit with us!
