What is Manchester Buddhist Centre?
Manchester Buddhist Centre has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in Manchester since 1977, and from our current location in the Northern Quarter since 1996
The Centre is bringing an ancient tradition alive in the modern world as part of the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly Friends of the Western Buddhist Order)
We have taught meditation and Buddhism to thousands of people and are well known for our friendly and informal style of teaching, exploring what Buddhism can teach us in the modern west
You are welcome to
- attend a Buddhism course
- try a meditation class
- practise yoga or have an alternative therapy at Bodywise Natural Health Centre
- attend a Living Well mindfulness course at Breathworks
- eat at Earth Cafe

I saw people who exemplified Buddhist principles — not as a theory, but as something alive
