Welcome to the Sydney Buddhist Centre About us

The Sydney Buddhist Centre in Newtown offers courses in Buddhism and Meditation in a friendly, supportive environment. Our teachers are practising Buddhists who strive to incorporate the ideals and practice of Buddhism into daily life. Our meditation techniques can be used by anyone regardless of religious beliefs.

Our Newtown centre is part of a worldwide movement - the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order or FWBO) which was founded in 1967 by the Venerable Sangharakshita.

The Triratna Buddhist Community draws upon the entire Buddhist tradition and expresses itself in a fresh and dynamic way.

The Sydney Buddhist Centre has run activities in various locations since 1981. Join us for classes and retreats and meet people with similar interests.



Introduction to Meditation
Wednesdays at 7pm from 24 February, SBC

Learn meditation, set up a daily practice and enjoy the fruits of mindfulness and loving kindness practices.If you are a beginner or wish to strengthen your practice, we invite you to join us.

$210 ($155 concession), 7 weeks

Under 35s Retreat
Friday 27- Sunday 29 February, Vijayaloka

On this retreat we will begin to get a sense of what the creative mind truly is. Creative mind is not about being an artist or having any special ‘talent’. It’s about finding freedom from the mechanical and habitual nature of the reactive mind, about questioning and moving beyond the usual.

The process begins with the simple application of awareness. We will be meditating, exploring a text “Mind Creative, Mind Reactive” by Sangharakshita, and doing simple workshops.

On retreat, living with others of like mind, cooking and eating together, in stunning bushland outside Sydney, we will have the conditions for deeper calm, creativity, and flourishing.

$190 ($140 concession)
