Welcome to Southsea Sangha… your friendly neighbourhood Buddhist meditation community!

We are renovating right now, and our new website is coming soon

You don’t need to be Buddhist to meditate or to just come hang with us at Sangha. If you are interested in exploring mindfulness, Buddhist meditation or teachings or maybe you’re just looking to deepen your practice or seeking a practice community, you’re very welcome here.

Founded in May 2014, our open access, peer led, Buddhist meditation sangha is an entirely volunteer-run, non profit community. We hold the intersection of meditation and social justice at our centre and aim to expand Dharma and meditation practice to a more diverse urban community, who are interested in self liberation and social change. We provide daylong retreats with visiting teachers throughout the year as well as peer led weekly and monthly groups.
