What to expect at a school visit:

The teacher will explain Buddha’s life story, guide a meditation, talk about our tradition, meditation, our community, rituals, ordination.  

Questions can be asked throughout.

You can either visit us here at our Centre (Chorlton) or we will come to your school/college.  Please state if you would prefer to visit our City Centre venue.

The event is usually 1 hour long.

We have found these talks very successful with both the students and staff.

We do request a £1 charge per student + travel expenses (if we’re visiting) to cover costs, as we are a registered charity (no. 1038999)

If you would like more information or to arrange a visit you can either email us at or call 0161 861 7012

Please note two very helpful ‘free’ resources that all schools can use: also (tel 01325 365265)


What to expect at a group/business visit:

The teacher will guide a meditation and talk about the what, why and how of Buddhist meditation and it’s benefits.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions.

We’ve hosted many talks for different organisations including Virgin Media, KPMG, Royal College of Music, University Hospital of South Manchester, The University of the 3rd Age, Hospital groups, Drug & Alcohol groups, Mental Health groups, a Visually Impaired group, and many more.  

If you would like more information and to arrange a visit you can email us on or call 0161 861 7012

We do make a charge for our visits as we are a charity (no. 1038999).  These are based on the length of the talk, numbers attending and the funding status of the visiting organisation.

If you were thinking of a short meditation for staff well-being, we would recommend our lunchtime meditations at our City Centre or Chorlton premises, which are open to everyone.  These are £3 per person and you can just drop in.  We have a large space so are able to cater for larger groups at these classes. If you can email or call to let us know you will be coming, we can set-up the space appropriately.  We are also happy to run one-off half hour meditations outside of this if that is preferable.
