Find on:
Spiritual Director: Ringu Tulku Rinpoche  
Notes and Events:

Bodhicharya Kent is a Buddhist group based in the Medway Town of Rochester under the guidance of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, a Tibetan Kagyu Lama, and is based around meditation practice, discussion and study.

We run meditation evenings every Tuesday evening, usually 8pm to 9:30pm, except for the last Tuesday of the month. When possible we also invite visiting teachers from the Bodhicharya community who are experienced in meditation.

The evening is open to everyone including Buddhists of all traditions, those of other faiths and those with none. Perhaps you have an interest in Buddhism and want to find out more or perhaps you are mainly looking to learn some meditation methods to apply in your daily life. Whatever your motivation, an open, curious and sceptical mind will be useful. People new to meditation as well as experienced practitioners are welcome.

The evening usually consists of meditation sessions, with guidance and instruction, that are comfortably split in to 10 minute sessions with time for a good stretch in between (more experienced meditators can sit through the stretch break).

A related topic is also introduced and discussed. The group is made up of the participants so active engagement, questions, reflections and discussion are welcome, however, if you prefer to just sit back, listen, reflect and take it in that is also very good. There are comfortable chairs and cushions available, but there are no meditation specific cushions so if you have your own and would prefer to sit on it then please bring it along.  There will be tea, coffee and biscuits to enjoy together at the end of the evening.

As of September 2014 we continue on with calm abiding meditation instruction and practice for all those who would like to learn or deepen a meditation practice and bring its many benefits into daily life. 

We will also be reading through a book by Ringu Tulku on Mind Training (known as Lojong in Tibetan) to provide some structure, continuity and perspective to the meditation evenings:

»Lojong is not simply a mental exercise or a new intellectual approach, it is a profound education. It creates a radical change in our usual pattern of thinking. The meditation instructions and advice are plain and straightforward. This is a practice for ordinary life. There is no complexity or formality involved. No special ability is needed. Anyone can train their mind. The wisdom of these slogans is not exclusive to Buddhism. It is universal and goes beyond any particular religion.« – Ringu Tulku.

For those who would like a copy of the book it can be purchased here.

All are welcome :-)
