Northants Buddhist & Meditation Centre


With roots going back 30 years we are the oldest established Buddhist and meditation group in Northamptonshire and surrounding area. We have welcomed thousands of people to our meetings and visiting teacher events.

We invite anyone wishing to learn about meditation, develop their meditation practice or who has an interest in Buddhism. An independent, nonsectarian Buddhist group with leanings towards Tibetan Buddhist traditions, we gladly welcome non-Buddhists and Buddhists of all traditions.

Regular weekly meetings are on Mondays from 7 to 9 p.m. (except public holidays) at the Friends’ Meeting House, Northall Street, Kettering NN16 8DS

Our usual Monday evening programme consists of silent or guided meditation, ideal for beginners, followed by a reading and discussion on a meditation or Buddhist theme appealing to non-Buddhists too. We then have a tea break, followed by a session devoted to generating love and compassion for all sentient beings; at the end we remember those in special need.
