About us

77 – 79 King St.

Kadampa Meditation Centre Aberdeen (KMC Aberdeen) was established in 2018 to offer a range of meditation classes, courses and retreats in Modern Buddhism for the people of Aberdeen and Northern Scotland.

We recently completed the renovations of our building in the heart of Aberdeen which can now function as a place of peace and refuge for everyone to enjoy.

We currently offer most of our classes in person with the option of joining online for Foundation Program.

Our classes are suitable for both beginners and also more experienced meditators. Modern Buddhism gives practical advice on how to solve our daily problems and live a happy, meaningful life that are suitable for everyone.

The Centre is run by a joyful and dedicated team of volunteers and we currently offer lunchtime half hour meditations, weekly meditation classes, study programs, weekend courses and retreats, drawing people from across the North of Scotland and beyond.

The centre cafe and bookshop is currently open daily 11am-2pm except Wednesday and Friday when they are closed.  They are also open for approx 30 mins before and after classes as well as during the breaks on longer weekend courses.   We hope to open more in the future.

The Centre in Aberdeen normally also serves as an outreach hub for the North of Scotland, with classes being run from the Centre in towns across the region – we have regular classes in Inverurie, Banchory, StonehavenAviemore, Nairn and Inverness.
