Welcome to the Home of the Triratna Buddhist Group in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, a place to learn and practise Buddhist meditation and the teachings of the Buddha in the context of spiritual friendship.
To find out a little more about Buddhism as practised within the Triratna Community, please go to the "Why?" page.
The Triratna Buddhist Community in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, is part of an international Buddhist movement with its origins in the UK. Originally founded in 1967 as the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order, the movement was renamed the Triratna Buddhist Community in 2010. To find out more, take a look at the Who? page.
The Shrewsbury Group was started in 2003 as part of an outreach project from the Birmingham Buddhist centre. Since then the group has grown into a flourishing Sangha (Buddhist spiritual community) with about 40 active members from across Shropshire, including several members of the Triratna Buddhist Order who teach Buddhism and meditation at our regular group meetings. To find out more, please go to the "Who?" page.
The group meets every Wednesday evening at 7.30 pm, and we also offer meditation courses for beginners. The next course starts on June 26. Click here to find out more.
