The meditation centre was established for those in search of a practical approach to the Buddha's path to enlightenment. Under the spiritual guidance of Paul Harris, we offer comprehensive instruction in the course of training as laid down in the Pali Canon (the collection of the Buddha's original discourses).
Situated in the centre of the market town of Bradford on Avon, the meditation centre is an extensive property (formerly a school) containing over a dozen bedrooms, offices, a library and a spacious shrine room, all set in a couple of acres of gardens.
The first step for anyone who would like to know more about this system of training is to arrange an interview here at the meditation centre. The personal contact entailed enables the potential student to get a clearer picture of our approach to the Buddha's teaching, as well as enabling us to assess whether he or she is likely to benefit from the training. Following an introductory period, the student is then welcome to participate in the full program of classes, lectures, residential retreats and other events held at the House of Inner Tranquillity.
Frequent contact with the centre and commitment to a daily meditation practice play an important part in progress along the path.
