Bodhicharya London helped give rise to Bodhicharya Kent, and the two groups have been closely linked ever since.

The London group meet on Thursdays from 18:30pm – 19:30pm at the Helios Centre, where they have 30 minutes of discussion on a Buddhist topic and 30 minutes of meditation.

In addition, they run day retreats each month, lead by Dirk de Klerk or by other visiting teachers. Attending from Rochester and the surrounding Medway Towns is very easy via the direct high speed train to St. Pancras International, as the Helios Centre is only a short five minute walk away from the station.

In keeping with Ringu Tulku’s guidance and the Bodhicharya ethos, the meetings are non-sectarian, and the people who attend the day retreats are diverse. Some are Buddhists of different traditions, some are from other faiths or none. People new to meditation as well as experienced practitioners are all welcome.
