Diversity Statement

Diversity and inclusion are really important to us. At the Shrewsbury Triratna Buddhist Centre we want to make the Buddha’s teachings available to everyone. We believe that wisdom and compassion are inseparable and that developing loving kindness towards all living beings is vital to growing spiritually.

We recognise that we’re not perfect and we are exploring how best we can make our Centre and activities more accessible and welcoming for all. We want everyone to feel welcome and included, and we want to remove any barriers there might be to people coming along.

If you’d like to talk to someone before taking the plunge and coming along, you can contact Karen, one of our Diversity Guardians - karenelizabethjones@gmx.co.uk
