Welcome to West Wales Buddhist Group

Looking to transform your life? Become more grounded and compassionate in yourself? Better able to engage positively with the world?

Learn to meditate or explore Buddhism: try our Open to All classes.


The West Wales Buddhist Group is a growing, lively community of Buddhists, putting the Buddha’s practical but ancient wisdom into practice in our lives.  We attract people from across West Wales, including Aberystwyth, Machynlleth, Aberdovey, Lampeter and as far south as Narberth and Newtown.

Come along for a creative and informal intro to meditation.  The two main forms of meditation we teach are the Mindfulness of Breathing (anapanasati) and the Cultivation of Loving-Kindness (metta bhavana): practices which enable us to become more whole-hearted, confident and energetic. No prior experience of meditation is required – just show up!  See our Open Events – All welcome!

For those who want to take their regular practice to the next level, take a look at our Going Deeper events to explore meditation and the Buddhist teachings more deeply.

All classes are run without charge but donations are appreciated.  Donations enable West Wales Buddhist Group to continue running meditation and Buddhism classes which can change people’s lives.  We want everyone to be able to come regardless of their financial circumstances.

The group is run by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, who teach and practice a non-sectarian style of Buddhism suitable for people living in the contemporary Western world.

I would like this website to become bilingual English/Welsh.  Please get in touch if you would be happy to do some translation!
