Bodhi Tree

Bodhi Tree is the schools educational team at the London Buddhist Centre in Bethnal Green, East London. We are all longstanding Buddhists and experienced teachers who enjoy working (and playing) with children, young people and adults.

Our main teachers are ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order as well as being qualified teachers.

We also teach secular mindfulness in schools as Breathing Space in Schools. See our mindfulness website for more information about mindfulness tasters, insets and training for both children and staff.

What we do

We support the teaching of Religious Education by effectively communicating the spirit as well as the principles and practices of Buddhism to school students. Meeting an experienced Buddhist practitioner at the London Buddhist Centre in Bethnal Green or in your school can deepen knowledge and understanding and make Buddhism come alive.

We also deliver sessions for trainee and qualified Religious Education teachers.

What people say

We receive a lot of positive feedback from staff and students of all ages who love seeing the London Buddhist Centre and enjoy the friendly and accessible teaching in and out of school. Many schools and colleges make annual bookings with us.

Our resources

Our hosts are experienced Buddhists and experienced teachers of young people. They’re usually ordained in the Triratna Order which is at the heart of a vibrant, contemporary and worldwide movement deeply rooted in the Buddhist tradition.

Visitors to the London Buddhist Centre benefit from entering the heart of a well-established and lively spiritual community.


The explanations that were given were very clear and informative - capturing and igniting the children's curiosity and interest in Buddhism and mindful practice. ​It was wonderful for them to also not only meet a Buddhist and receive that as a first-hand experience but then also to be guided through a meditation for a taster of what the life of a Buddhist involves.

The meditation was really calming, it helped me to sort out my thoughts.
