Meditation Centre for Modern Buddhism

Find lasting peace and happiness through meditation

Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre is a well-established and popular London meditation Centre based in Golders Green, and operating in the heart of the city and the surrounding areas.

Address: Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre, 11-13 Woodstock Road, Golders Green, London NW11 8ES

Enhancing meditation and studying Buddhism

Heruka Kadampa Meditation Centre offers weekly meditation classes and weekend meditation courses open to everyone. These are all part of the General Programme (GP). There are also two systematic study programmes - the Foundation Programme (FP) and the Teacher Training Programme (TTP) - for people who wish to understand and practise Buddha's teachings more deeply, and possibly become qualified Kadampa Teachers.

Our basic wishes are to be happy all the time and to be free from suffering. We can only fulfil these wishes through training or improving our minds - as Buddha said, Everything depends on the mind.

To improve our minds effectively we need to listen to and study the teachings of modern Buddhism as taught at this leading London meditation centre. We need to learn authentic meditation techniques, and contemplate and meditate on the teachings, especially those on compassion and wisdom. In this way we will come to experience deep inner peace, or peace of mind, solve all our daily problems - such as anxiety, anger and depression - and accomplish the real meaning of human life.

Subscriptions and memberships from £30/month

We offer subscription and membership options. These give you full access to a range weekday classes and weekend events for a modest flat fee. You can broaden and deepen your understanding of modern Buddhism, and gain more experience of the wonderful benefits of meditation.

Pujas, festivals and special events

In addition to meditation classes, Heruka KMC runs pujas or chanted prayers, offers meditation retreats and, as a member of the New Kadampa Tradition-International Kadampa Buddhist Union, provides access to International Kadampa Festivals.

We all have the two basic wishes: to be free from everyday problems and to find lasting peace and happiness. With Buddhist meditation we have the actual method to realise these two goals. Through contemplating Buddha’s practical insights we will gradually reduce negative, unpeaceful minds - such as anxiety, anger, stress, loneliness and dissatisfaction - and replace them with more peaceful states - including patience, love, compassion and consideration for others. This process of spiritual development will make us happier, more positive and much better able to help those around us.
