Triratna Buddhist Group (Worthing)

The Worthing Triratna Buddhist Community meets every Thursday 7.30 – 9.30pm at The Friends Meeting House, rear of 34 Mill Road, Worthing, BN11 5DR.

We place an emphasis on friendliness, meditation, study and bringing our understandings of Buddhism to our daily lives. On Monday and Tuesday evenings some of us meet to study. 

If you feel an inner voice wanting to make sense of life, wanting to find a better way to live in the world or maybe a clear vision or desire for greater freedom in this life, in this world then Buddhism is well worth a look. Please feel free to drop in and find out more.

Meditation

We have a Buddhism and meditation evening every Thursday from 7.30 – 9.30 pm. We usually close for one or two Thursdays over Yuletide.

The evenings are open to everyone regardless of experience, age, gender, race, class. A warm welcome awaits – just turn up – we’re on the ground floor, through the front door and to the left.

Everyone is welcome to attend from newcomers wanting to dip their toes in, to those wishing to go deeper in their practice.

Study Courses

For those wishing to learn more about Buddhism we run courses of dharma study and go on regular retreats to deepen our practice.

Devotional

The first Thursday of each month is usually a practice evening – an opportunity to  meditate together and hold a Puja, or devotional ritual.

We celebrate key occasions throughout the Buddhist year as well as the Summer and Winter solstices.

Community

We are part of the wider Triratna Buddhist community, to which everyone is welcomed. We enjoy links to Buddhist Centres, retreat centres and other groups around the UK and beyond. Meditation, festivals and activities are available to a wide and diverse community, including specific groups for the LGBTQIA+ community, for young people and for People of Colour, across Triratna.
