About Us

We are part of the Triratna Buddhist Community. You can find out about our community at thebuddhistcentre.com. Our group has been meeting since 2010.

Akasati Annie McAuley

Order Member with the Triratna Buddhist Order

Akasati has been a keen meditator throughout her adult life and was ordained within the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1999. She has regularly led retreats and courses within a Buddhist context and is also qualified as a secular mindfulness teacher. She started Love Mindfulness with Carolyn in 2016 teaching mindfulness in schools and now also working with adults.

Dharmavajra Chris Garland

Order Member with the Triratna Buddhist Order

Dharmavajra has been meditating since 1997 and was ordained within the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2007. He has been teaching meditation and leading Buddhist study groups since then and currently leads the Monday night meditation group. His approach is very inclusive of others' experience being based on an understanding that meditation is about letting go into a simpler mode of being available to us all.

Padmarajni

Order Member with the Triratna Buddhist Order

Padmarajni is currently leading our women's mitra study group. This closed group is working through a four year course in Buddhist studies based largely on the work of Sangharakshita who founded the Triratna Buddhist Community in the late sixties.
