Local Group | Cardiff
We began meeting as a group in 2001, inspired by Thay’s teachings. At first we were a very small group, but the sangha has grown steadily, especially since we have been meeting online during the pandemic. Most of us live within a 12-mile radius of Cardiff, but the online meetings can include people living anywhere.
We meet approximately fortnightly on a Sunday morning 8.30-10.30 am for a Morning of Mindfulness. This may include guided meditation, slow indoor walking and silent sitting, sometimes a reading or Touching the Earth, followed by dharma sharing and recitation of the Five Mindfulness Trainings.
When we are able to meet in person again, we will mostly be meeting at a lovely peaceful Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Cardiff which is central and accessible, and there is the option of staying on afterwards for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat in their vegan cafe next door. Participants are asked for a small donation to cover the cost of hiring the room. Some meetings may be at members homes and we may also continue to hold some meetings online.
