The aim and vision of the Mid Essex Buddhist Centre is to create an environment where spiritual friendship and Sangha can flourish to enable people to grow and develop towards their full potential through meditation and the study of Buddhism.
The practices taught at the centre are also suited to people who have not previously meditated but wish to do so, particularly for reasons of stress or other similar issues.
The Mid Essex Buddhist Centre is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community with strong links to the larger London Buddhist Centre.
The Centre is a Registered Charity (Reg. No. 1172278). It is funded purely from the donations of those who attend the meditation sessions and study classes.
People attending our centre are introduced to the Triratna System of Practice at an appropriate level. This is a complete approach to living a more integrated, kinder and fulfilling life. Within that system we learn two essential Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, which enhances awareness and peace of mind; and Metta Bhavana, or 'development of loving kindness', which has the potential to bring about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world.
