Kagyu Samye Dzong Scarborough Tibetan Buddhist Centre has existed since April 2009, and we now have a building at Londesborough Lodge in the Crescent.

We are having building works done throughout October and reviewing the situation regarding opening considering the safety of everyone. In the meantime we would be very happy if you’d like to join us in the zoom meditation every Monday evening 6pm to 7pm, if you would like to join then please contact Ani Tselha ani.tselha@googlemail.com and also we have Green Tara puja on Saturday and Sunday at 7.30am -8.30am and Guru Rinpoche on Sunday at 9am with the Cardiff and Glasgow centres.

Looking forward to seeing on zoom or in person at the centre when it is safe to open.

Centre Activities


Meditation is the art of finding peace and happiness within, using simple methods of calming and stabilising.  We offer weekly meditation sessions and regular meditation & mindfulness training courses.

Buddhism expresses a deep respect for all faiths, and does not require people to convert to Buddhism in order to find the benefits of meditation.  Buddhist methods of meditation are aimed not only at calming the mind, but also at achieving insight into how the mind functions, and its true nature.
