Become a Resident at Chenrezig

Chenrezig Kadampa Buddhist Centre is a wonderful place to live in the heart of the city of Lancaster. The city lies within beautiful countryside and is only 4 miles from the coast at Morecambe where you can enjoy stunning sunsets over Morecambe Bay. There are good train & bus links to the Lake District and the centre is only 40 miles from Manjushri KMC, the mother centre of the New Kadampa Tradition.

The centre is a perfect place to live if you want a peaceful environment with no TV and the opportunity to contribute to creating peace in this world. All residents have free access to our weekly meditation classes that teach people to overcome negative states of mind and develop compassionate, loving minds based on the wisdom of Buddha’s teachings. To become a resident you need to practically help with the activities of the centre.  In accordance with the rules of all centres within the New Kadampa Tradition no meat/fish  or alcohol are permitted to be consumed on the premises.

There is a mixture of residents with some committing themselves full-time to the activities of the centre , others engaged in paid work and some studying full or part-time. Each resident rents a room & shares the communal kitchen/living area, bathroom  and shower room & can use the reception area to relax when there are no classes. You can rest in the lovely back garden or on the roof terrace.

Rent includes all utilities and internet access and varies from £275-£315 per month depending on the size of the room.
