Nagarjuna Kadampa Meditation Centre (KMC) Leicester, was established to provide people in Leicester and the surrounding areas with the opportunity to learn how to meditate and practice Buddha’s teachings.
It is a special place of tranquillity, relaxation, reflection and friendship. It is home to an international community who share a similar wish to make their lives meaningful by finding lasting peace and happiness from within and helping others to do the same.
Our Centre is open to the public and offers a variety of meditation classes from beginner’s classes on Monday evening to our in-depth classes on Wednesdays. We also have lunchtime classes and regular monthly events.
There is something for everyone – for both beginners and more experienced meditators alike.
