Young Buddhists (YoBs)

We’re taking a break from Friday meetings until January 2019.

Usually we meet informally on the first Friday of every month at the Buddhist Centre to meditate together, discuss Buddhism and meditation, hang out and drink tea. You can stay in touch through our Facebook page.

Everyone 18-35 is welcome, Buddhist or just curious – feel free to bring your friends along. Newcomers are welcomed warmly and meditation instruction is always available for beginners. Plenty of opportunity for questions and getting to know each other. No charge – please make a donation.

Discussions are usually around Buddhist teachings and practices, and how we can apply them to our lives as busy young people. We also meet up even less formally for fun stuff and general hanging out, and put on day retreats and weekends in the countryside, specifically for young people. If you have any ideas for things you’d like to do or discussions you’d like to have then let us know!

University of Birmingham

Buddhist Meditation Society

We meet Wednesday afternoons (during term time) 3.00-5.00pm. Check the Facebook page for venue. Come along if you want to learn meditation, explore Buddhist ideas about life and how to live well, if you want to meditate with others, or if you’re simply feeling a bit stressed out and wonder if meditation might help.

Free and friendly society. Run by students at the University with support of teachers from the Birmingham Buddhist Centre.
