Please note that Bodhicharya London are currently conducting their many activities in person and online via Zoom

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

The group is lead by Dirk de Klerk under the guidance of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and provides a rich offering of daily, weekly and monthly online practice sessions and events, including a monthly day retreat lead by Dirk or other visiting teachers. 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.

Please see here for more information and the Zoom meetings details.

In more normal times, 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. However, now it’s even easier to attend from wherever you are via their Zoom meetings.


The Helios Centre, 116 Judd Street, London WC1H 9NS
