Bodhi Tree Brighton offers drop in Buddhist meditation groups, weekend and day retreats by donation. We welcome everybody.

Please book online events as normal so we can send you the joining details.

At Bodhi Tree we welcome everyone regardless of age, gender, religious or cultural background, nationality, education or sexual orientation.

We ask for donations, rather than a specific charge, for all our groups and retreats. This is so that anyone, regardless of financial circumstances, can attend. This is our only source of income, and none of our trustees receive any payment.

Wherever possible the venues we use are wheelchair accessible, but please contact us before booking for a retreat or attending a group. Please also contact us if you have any other particular needs so that we can discuss ways of meeting them. Chairs are available at all of our venues.

We welcome feedback on how we can be more inclusive as this is a core value for us.
