Our meditation groups are usually held at the Ton Boon Meditation Centre 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 overcome sufferings and stress and to discovering a new freedom and health in one's life!
We hold yin and restorative yoga, somatic flow yoga and Kundalini yoga classes for all round body and mind well-being. We run weekend 'Urban retreats' at the centre & Forest retreats' in local woodlands.
The conscious dance events aim to facilitate healing and transformation through sound, movement, body and breath. They are held at Westbury Leigh Community Hall and other venues around the West Country.
Ton Boon Dharma works along side the 'The Ton Boon Buddhist Community Group'.
The community group is a 'not-for-profit' collective and consists of dharma teachers, facilitators and volunteers.
They aim to create peaceful and positive connections in the community, that are accessible to all.
The activities they run are:
'The Bradford on Avon Tibetan Sangha Group' led by Graham Lever.
'The Sangha Sisters Circle' led by Nicky Elliott & Julia Cole.
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 our 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 our lives.
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!
