Greater Manchester Buddhist Convention

Run by Manchester Buddhist Convention Committee

with Manchester University Buddhist Society

Venue: St Peter’s House Chaplaincy, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9GH

Date: Saturday 14th October 2017

The GMBC committee welcome you to join this year’s event and engage with different Buddhist schools across the region to increase compassion and understanding in our society.

The Greater Manchester Buddhist Convention (GMBC) has been running since 2006. (We just changed names. Until 2010 it was known as the Manchester Buddhist Conference and in 2017 became the Greater Manchester Buddhist Convention.) Its objective is to bring together all the different Buddhist groups from North West England and anybody interested in Buddhism and meditation. It is attended by monks and nuns from the various traditions, lay Buddhist practitioners and meditators and Budd-curious people from around the region. There are a number of different talks, presentations, workshops and demonstrations from different groups and traditions. These could be things like introductory meditation classes from the various styles of meditation or talks about different aspects of Buddhism.

The official programme may be downloaded here: GMBC-2017-programme

This year’s theme: NAVIGATING LIFE AND AWAKENING TO PEACE.

On the day of the event, there will be invited speakers and meditation practice covering a range of different Buddhist traditions in relation to the central topic. In addition, there will be a series of workshops which you can choose based on your own interests.

A vegan lunch will be provided on that day. We kindly ask people to register for catering purposes.
