    Description

    Our centre is a charity which purpose is to benefit the people of Leeds and beyond through the promotion of the practice of meditation in general and the Buddhist faith in particular.
    Everyone is welcome to our classes, buddhists and non-buddhists and so we are open to everyone who would like to help us running our centre and seeing what we do and being part of our lovely community.
    From one or two weeks to start with, your stay can be extended if all goes well!

    We have accomodations available with two single rooms and one single-sex shared room with two beds. There is also a shared bathroom. Working a few hours a day with two days off, you will have access to our full programme of meditations and teachings as well as the chance to visit the vibrant city of Leeds. For nature lovers we have a garden and the biggest city park in Europe 5 minutes away from the house (walking distance)!

    We also have a centre where our classes take place in the heart of Leeds.
