'Sangha Sisters' woman's circle with Nicky Elliott & Julia Cole
Sunday Mornings 10 am - 11.30 am (rolling 2 week schedule)
Guides HQ, 18 Church Street, B-o-A, BA15 1LN

Our Sisterhood is a community of women who value spiritual practice. 

We gather in a circle to create a healing space to support one another on our spiritual paths.

We do this by sitting in meditation, deepening our understanding of the dharma (the buddhas teachings), sharing our truth and practicing mindfulness in relationship to one another. 

Our aim is to encourage spiritual interdependence and maturity in order to find balance in our lives, leading to benefit for our loved ones, the wider community and all beings.

Suggested donation of £3 - £5.

EMAIL NICKY directly at: for more details and Zoom link.

'Dhamma Brothers' men's group with Chris Nuttall

The Dhamma Brothers group offers a space for men to share aspects of their meditation practice, thoughts, struggles and hopes. Its a safe space to discuss that which needs to be addressed to find your healing. Alternatively, you may wish to maintain silence and simply enjoy the tranquillity, and this will be respected also – your presence solidifies our bond as a Buddhist community. 


Thank you. May we practise well and be free from suffering.

Retreats & visits to our forest monasteries and retreat centres

We very much encourage our practitioners and friends to go and visit the other Thai Forest Buddhist Centres around the country. These places are well established and have been running as functioning monasteries and retreat centres for many years. They provide the perfect environment to take a break from the business and stresses of life and find some well-being and healing. You can gain much insight and peace through the practice of meditation, receiving compassionate spiritual support and top-notch guidance from these world renowned Ajahns (teachers).

All 4 centres are located in beautiful countryside where good fresh air and great walks can be experienced also.

These places are always beneficial and a delight to visit!

Please visit their websites for further details and inspiration.
