Welcome to the Bridport Triratna Buddhist Group. We are accessible from East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset. We are a friendly and welcoming group which has been meeting since 2008. The group is run on a drop-in basis and so no experience is needed in order to attend.

The sessions are structured so that new-comers will be given any instructions that they need. The main practices that we teach are called the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana.



We meet on Saturday mornings. Zoom sessions start at 11.00 and end at 12.30. The sessions at Bothenhampton Village Hall run from 10.30 until 12.30. The dates are shown at the start of the web page.


We meet in the village hall on the Main street of Bothenhampton which is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Bridport. Bothenhampton is just off the A35 between the bottom of West street and Grove nurseries. The post code is DT6 4BP. The hall is easy to find, quiet and also warm. There is a map in the contacts section.


Who is it for?

The group is run on a drop-in basis with no previous experience needed. Experienced meditators are also welcome.


What do we do?

Each session usually consists of two meditation sits, a brief talk (with some discussion) and there always a tea break.


What do I need?

We do provide some meditation stools and mats for use during the sessions and chairs are also available but if you already have your own meditation gear it is a good idea to bring it. Loose and comfortable clothing is also advisable.


Who leads the group?

The group is led by Alayasri and Suddhacitta who are members of the Triratna Buddhist Order

What will it cost?

The group is run on a dana or donation basis so participants can contribute what they feel is appropriate.
