West London Buddhist Centre


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we closed to the public in March 2020 and have moved all our activities online for the time being. We are delighted to keep offering classes at this time to support the community to stay connected and to deepen personal practice whether that’s meditation, mindfulness or bodywork. We have a thriving and diverse community, and you do not need to identify as Buddhist to join in any of our events – just an open mind and a willingness to explore!

To stay up to date:


We’ve offered all our events on a donation basis during this crisis. Please consider making a donation to ensure we can keep offering these teachings into the future.
