We offer regular Buddhist practice sessions on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm until 8.30pm and on Saturday mornings from 9.30am until 10.30am (we do some walking meditation in the temple garden first from 9am – get in touch if you’d like to join us for this). We also offer online-only practice twice a month and we stream our regular practice live on Zoom.
All are welcome to join us, whether you’ve attended Buddhist practice before or not. We do offer extra instruction for first timers on the first week of every month but do feel free to just turn up to any session.
There is no parking at the temple, although we can sometimes make a space available for disabled parking – do get in touch. Otherwise there is plenty of free roadside parking a minute’s drive out of town (towards Worcester) on the left hand side.
Please arrive up to ten minutes before the start times – we start promptly. Leave your shoes in the porch. Do come straight in (both front doors will be open) and someone will be there to meet you and show you where to go.
Our practice sessions begin with a Dharma Glimpse by a member of our community. We then do some silent sitting, some seated chanting, reciting the refuges and precepts, and we have a talk from one of Bright Earth’s Buddhist teachers. You can read more on this page: What to expect during practice sessions or view some of our past practice sessions on our YouTube channel here.
We suggest a donation of £8 for each session (or whatever you can afford) to support the work of the temple and to keep our offerings available to everyone. You can make a one-off or regular donation here.
If you have any questions about our practice do get in touch with Kaspa and Satya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are welcome to stay afterwards for an optional cup of tea and a chat – if you have any questions you can ask them here or by email.
We look forward to welcoming you! 🙏🏻
