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

So, impermanence! we cannot run our events at the moment until at least the end of May. Some sessions will be offered online. Each teacher has different preferences but we are hoping that there will be some virtual coming together on each of the days that we have advertised. So if you have booked, or want to book, there should be something for you on that day. We'll keep you posted as we get clarity from each individual teacher.

Please see each individual group listing for details there - LGBTQ and Awakened Heart are running online, Open Group is joining the Gaia House Online Dharma Hall, Forest Sangha members will be joining Venerable Canda  and Just Sitting is suspended. Details on the group page

May all beings be well and at peace
Bodhi Tree Brighton committee.

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.
