Welcome to the Ipswich Buddhist Centre

Whether you are looking for a little more peace of mind and inner calm or, perhaps you want to pursue an interest in Buddhism, there are meditation classes, study groups, day and weekend retreats, run by the Ipswich Buddhist Centre which will support you.

Introductory Classes are welcoming and informal and no experience is necessary - simply turn up!

Details of our Introductory Classes and Courses can be found on our Classes page.


So you think you know about Buddhism?
Think again!

"Buddhism is just about learning how to meditate to calm the mind and be more peaceful - right? "
No!... though this is likely to happen if you learn to meditate with us, and you are welcome to come along to the centre and just learn meditation, but Buddhism is about having the courage to fully challenge and change yourself. Come along and learn how to transform your life and our world.
