“For a friendly and accessible introduction to meditation,
Madhyamaka Buddhist Centre in the Yorkshire Wolds is hard to beat.”
The Observer Magazine, Jan 2019
Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC), is a special place of tranquility, rest and reflection located near Pocklington in the Yorkshire Wolds. We also have a Meditation Centre, book & gift shop at Gillygate in York City Centre.
We are part of the New Kadampa Tradition, the International Kadampa Buddhist Union, and are home to an international Kadampa Buddhist community who share a wish to make their lives meaningful by finding lasting peace and happiness from within and helping others to do the same.
The Centre is open to the public and offers a variety of meditation classes, in depth Buddhist study programmes, day courses, and weekend retreats that are suitable for beginners and those with more experience. For those attending our weekend courses, we also offer comfortable single, twin, and dormitory accommodation.
