Community Livingin a Modern Kadampa Centre
Becoming a part of the residential community here at KMC Sheffield is a unique opportunity to experience Modern Buddhism in action. Enjoy the inspirational company of others who emphasize living a spiritual life, an extensive education program and retreat opportunities.
Our community consists of residents – people who live on-site at KMC Sheffield, including ordained Sangha – and others who live in the local area. You will find a warm, friendly community here, who strives to exemplify Buddhist practice through public service. This includes providing everyone, regardless of background, experience or belief, the opportunity to learn how to achieve inner peace and happiness through meditation. All residents contribute to the life of the community through their voluntary work. This includes cooking, cleaning, gardening, organizing meditation courses, and running the cafes. Residents also work in the offices supporting the many activities on site.
