Welcome to the website of Dechen London Sakya Buddhist Centre.

Dechen London: Sakya Buddhist Centre is a meditation centre, shop and events space located in Notting Hill, West London. We run Buddhism and meditation classes and host Buddhist teachings by visiting lamas. We also hold cultural events. Look out for our art exhibitions, book launches and poetry readings.

 

NOTE: Due to the UK Government’s announced prohibition of collective religious activities from Thursday, 5 November, all classes and pujas will be on Zoom for the time being. We hope to recommence our usual programme as soon as possible.
