New Buddhist Group Starting in Ryde!

I have been in communication with Meme who is starting a Buddhist Meet Up group in Ryde.

Her spiritual journey started many years ago. she is a Meditation Teacher, Mindfulness Teacher and Complementary Therapist.

Since moving to the Island a year ago, she explored the idea of joining a Buddhist group; this, alongside the Sea of course, was one of the main reasons for her relocation. She found that despite there being a thriving Buddhist Community on the Island, there didn’t appear to be a group which meets weekly, in Ryde.

The aim of the Meet Up, is to initially bring like-minded people in the area together, and have a relaxed chat over a cup of Coffee.

It’s her future intention to find a quiet venue, and set up a Sangha community in the Ryde area, where fellow Buddhists can meditate and explore the Dharma together.

Initially, meetings will be the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 2pm Р3.30pm at the Bagel Wrap, 61a Union Street, Ryde, PO33 2LG, STARTING THIS SATURDAY THE 16th!

The group will be non denominational and of gentle form. A typical session will consist of a period of silent meditation, a break for tea, a recorded talk from the Gaia House Dharma Teachers, a further period of silent meditation and a Metta prayer to end the session.

She hopes to see you soon (her website is
