Day Retreat for People of Colour

Sunday 19th February | 10am til 4pm | In Person | London Buddhist Centre

The first of this year’s popular Day Retreats kick off at London Buddhist Centre

These days provide a great way to learn or recap on the basics for meditation and an opportunity to meet the team in person. If you’ve been joining us online and want to take the next step, then these one day events are a great place to start.

Led by Suryagupta and others from the People of Colour team, join us for a day of practice, connection and community.

Bring a vegan lunch to share

Open to newcomers and those who have been practising for some time.

Online Events

The London People of Colour group run regular events for people of African, Asian or mixed heritage to come together to learn meditation and be inspired by the Buddha’s teaching. 

As the number of in person events grows, with both day and residential retreats, we’ve decided to move our online Sunday sessions to once a month. They will now be on the second Sunday of each month, starting at 10am and finishing by11.30am.

We’ll continue to have guided meditations, opportunties for reflective practice and time to connect with others.

Join us on these in person retreats coming up 2023 to experience community, connection and growth.
