Lam Rim Bristol Buddhist Centre
The Lam Rim Bristol Buddhist Centre follows Buddhism in the Tibetan Gelug tradition taught by the Spiritual Director, the late Ven. Geshe Damcho Yonten and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It offers regular evening meditation, talks and discussions and non-residential weekend courses (see current programme).
The Lam Rim Bristol Centre also incorporates the Centre for Whole Health, providing complementary therapies such as Osteopathy, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Counselling etc and courses in Massage, Shiatsu, Tai-Chi, Yoga etc.
The Centre is closed during lock-down – but we are open on-line!

An enthusiastic group of practising Buddhists established the Lam Rim Bristol Buddhist Centre in 1988. It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the South of Bristol, not far from Bristol city centre. There is a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere throughout the building.
The Buddhist Centre holds most activities in the evenings and at weekends. We occasionally host visits from schools and colleges during the day. The capacity of the shrine room is about 25 adults – more for primary school children. We can sometimes accommodate larger numbers of visitors in the main hall in the Centre for Whole Health.
The Lam Rim Bristol Trust (a registered Charity since 1986) owns and manages the Centre. Income from the Centre for Whole Health provides a stable financial support for all its activities. The services of the Centre for Whole Health are open to everyone. This is an active expression of the Buddhist principles of care and concern for others. Users of the Centre share a self-service cafe where teas, coffee and a variety of snacks.
