This Centre is laying the foundation in Borrowdale for the establishment of a place of meditative practice and the development of unconditional compassion for all Beings.

The BMC will offer regular meditation sessions, talks and courses on various aspects of Buddhism including compassion, mindfulness, death & dying, dreams and relieving stress.


It is recognized that we all lead busy lives and even the best intention to meditate can get lost once in a while. Joining a group can make one more committed to our practice. So come along and put into practice the ways in which you can live a happier, more mindful and peaceful life.

Courses and Retreats 2022

Samten Drime will be giving two talks at the Meditation centre in April and May. Samten is a fully ordained monk in the Karma Kagyu tradition.  He has completed 12 years in retreat - six years in Samye Dechen Shing Men’s Retreat on the Isle of Arran in Scotland, followed by another six years in Sekhar Retreat in Nepal.

In both retreats he was under the direction of Drupon Khen Rinpoche, from whom he has received a wide range of teachings.

Samten’s role is as a Dharma Helper.  With easily understandable, clear and down to earth teachings he will help old and new practitioners alike to deepen their understanding of basic practice and meditation.
