Warm greetings to you.
Ton Boon Dharma is an organisation that offers donation based meditation classes, pay-as-you-go yoga, and also runs workshops, meditation retreats and 'Dance Liberation' conscious dance events.
Our meditation groups are held at the Ton Boon Buddhist Temple and are places where the local community can come together to practice and learn about the dharma (the teachings of the Buddha). We teach practical meditation techniques to over-come sufferings and stress and to discovering a new freedom and health in ones life!
We hold yin and restorative yoga for all round body and mind well-being here too.
The conscious dance events aim to facilitate healing and transformation through movement, breath and sound and are held at Westbury Leigh Community Hall and other venues around the West Country.
Ton Boon Dharma works in partnership with the 'The Ton Boon Buddhist Community Group' (a group of volunteers) at The Ton Boon Buddhist Temple' (in the Thai Forest Tradition)
The community group is a 'not-for-profit' collective and consists of a collection of dharma teachers, facilitators and volunteers. We hold events and classes that aim to create peaceful and positive connections in the community and that are accessible to all.
An ongoing activity we hold is 'The Bradford on Avon Tibetan Sangha Group' run every week by Graham Lever.
Our collective ethos is to teach and practice together out of compassion and care for all beings.
We aim to help people bring a clarity and calm to their lives to reduce stress and clear away negativity. This can create the space for a more contented and happier state of mind to develop, bringing a genuine well-being and freedom to your life.
Our groups are a safe and peaceful place of practice and learning. People of all backgrounds come together to explore the meditative life and develop wholesome and healthy friendships.
Some of our sangha, young and old, gather to practice meditation and hear teachings from Luang Por Kampong and Ajahn Pakorn
Sharing food and a day of Dana (generosity and giving) to celebrate Kathina (offering of new robes to the monks). An ancient tradition dating back to the time of the Buddha.
We welcome people of all faiths and beliefs to come and see for themselves the great benefits that a full range of meditation activities can offer.
Be well, be peaceful!
With Metta (in loving kindness)
