School, College & Group Visits
All year round we welcome local schools and other groups to the peaceful setting of Maitreya Kadampa Buddhist Centre. Groups come to experience the beautiful meditation room (with Buddhist statues and art) and to enjoy a simple guided meditation and talks on Buddhism.
The centre is open to everyone and we are always happy to arrange visits and tours of the centre. Alternatively, if more convenient, we can send one of our students or teachers to your school or group to explain and answer questions on meditation and the Buddhist way of life.
What to Expect
A typical visit would last up to one hour and include a brief tour of the centre to get a feel for life in a working Buddhist Centre and community. This is followed by a talk and meditation in our meditation room, which is a lovely tranquil environment. The group will be guided through a simple breathing meditation, a talk on basic Buddhist view and there will also be time for Q&A to allow for any questions that may have come up. We can also explain some aspects of Buddhist symbolism and anything else you would like to cover.
