Jamyang Bath Buddhist Group is dedicated to cultivating wisdom and compassion through the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and meditation. We want to share the rich heritage of Buddhist ideas and practices as widely as possible, because we are convinced of their value in today’s world.
We would like to share our vision for future development with you.
We would like our own base in the centre of Bath, so that we can offer more classes of different types and at different times of the day, and so that people can drop into a quiet and welcoming space when they need and to access our library.
For this we would like to rent a room that is accessible to all, spacious, attractive and light, and that we can use flexibly – opening up when we have visiting speakers, and cosying down for smaller classes, giving us space for admin and storage. And it would need to be affordable.
That’s the long term vision. In the short term our needs are simpler:
A Room with (or without) a view
While our room at New Oriel Hall has been very suitable in many respects (comfort, parking and friendliness to name but three), we would like to make a move. Amazingly, we are beginning to outgrow it, for one thing – it is getting quite cosy now at some of the classes. We would also like something more central, and somewhere we can store our things more easily.
So, if on your travels through Bath you come across a building which rents out spaces, and you think it has a room that might be suitable, please do let us know. At the moment we only need to rent something one evening a week for our Wednesday classes and pujas.
Our main criteria are that it should be:
- reasonably priced
- clean, pleasant and reasonably quiet
- have a cupboard where we can safely store our cushions, shrine and library (or will allow us to have our own)
- have access to tea making facilities
- be a place that is legally set up to host groups (safety checks, insurance etc.)
There are other desirable qualities, but I think those are the main things. If you are a frequenter of classes – meditation, yoga, Pilates etc, you have maybe already seen a little gem. If not, do please keep an eye out for us. You can email at email@example.com
We are keen to continue bringing a wealth of inspiring visiting speakers to Bath, and also to offer a greater range of regular classes and events, specifically:
We believe all this is achievable. If you would like to help us make this happen, then you might like to consider one or more from the following:
