West London Buddhist Centre

WLBC is a valuable resource – a place where everyone can meditate and deepen their practice.  We offer something for everyone – locals and Londoners everywhere, of whatever background or religion.  Check our calendar of classes, courses and workshops in mindfulness, buddhism, meditation, yoga and qigong.  We hold regular concerts, some poetry readings, literary events and give great talks. There are special groups for young people, newcomers and long term practitioners. We explore themes like social engagement, freedom, death, enlightenment, ethics, kindness and communication. We’re adding new things all the time, so check this site to see what’s on or sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page. Rooms are available for hire as well. We host school visits, programmes for recovery and veterans, and secular mindfulness courses.

The WLBC has a talented and varied teachers team. Our meditation teachers are all thoroughly rooted in many years of Buddhist and meditative practice and are members of the Triratna Buddhist Order. Although each teacher has a different style, they are all very friendly and welcome people from various backgrounds and levels of experience.
