Southington Buddhist Fellowship

Farmington Buddhists
A typical meeting

Our Buddhist Practice Group (BPG) of Farmington used to serve Avon, Burlington, Simsbury, West Hartford, Plainville and New Hartford areas. We were an affiliated community of the Buddhist Faith Fellowship of Connecticut and founded in the year 2005.

A PLACE FOR FELLOWSHIP  We offer a caring, spiritual and open environment that naturally creates healthy relationships between the members of our spiritual family. With our regular gatherings, practice groups, social events, etc. there is a place for you too.

 

A PLACE FOR LEARNING We are engaged in the study of the whole of Buddhism but place more focus on Shin Buddhism, which is designed for ordinary working people with busy schedules.

 

A PLACE FOR PRACTICE Every gathering is an occasion for spiritual refreshment full of blessings and inspiration. Our primary reason for meeting together is to practice the dharma, and to awaken to the Oneness of reality.

Our meetings Include discussion, voice meditation, fellowship and refreshments. Linda and her husband want you to know that they have two very well-behaved dogs & cats (for those who are allergic).
