School visits

school visit 2The Brighton Buddhist Centre has been welcoming educational and community groups for many years. Our sessions are popular with schools in Brighton and Sussex many of whom visit regularly, so please book well in advance to avoid disappointment. We have full disabled access.

Visits can be tailored to your needs. A typical school visit, lasting about ninety minutes, will include an introduction to the Centre; the Buddha’s life and teachings; story-telling, with puppets for the younger children; and time for drawing of the shrine (please bring workbooks!). There will also be an opportunity to experience meditation through relaxation and stilling exercises. These are non-religious in their content; the team is careful to respect other faiths and visitors will not be asked to engage in any ritual activity.

You are welcome to visit the Centre beforehand to prepare for your visit and we may be able to help with learning resources for your group.

We ask for a donation of £1.50 per student or a minimum donation of £40 per group. If you need to give less please let us know. Adults with school groups are welcomed at no extra charge.

“A very special experience for young children”

“I really liked just sitting and thinking about myself and other people. I felt really happy afterwards.”

“I enjoyed doing the meditation but on the first one I got butterflies but on the second one I loved it.”
