Order of Buddhist Contemplatives

Established as a monastic order in 1983, The Order of Buddhist Contemplatives is an outgrowth of the previous Zen Mission Society. The Order serves to unify its members and congregation, thereby helping to support the religious practice of all. The Order embraces the diversity of expression found in its temples, meditation groups and individual members. It endeavours to assure that the teachings and practice offered by its licensed priests and lay ministers remain true to the Dharma transmitted by its founder.

The Place of Peace Dharma House is situated on the outskirts of Aberystwyth, a coastal town in West Wales.

It serves as a small Buddhist Temple for the local area but its' primary function is as a retreat house for our broader congregation and for those who would like to follow the practice of Serene Reflection Meditation as taught by our Order.

Within the regular daily schedule activities unfold according to the needs of those present, with the emphasis being on a quiet contemplative approach.

PRIOR: Rev. Master Myoho Harris
The Order was founded by one of the first Western female Zen masters, Reverend Master Jiyu-Kennett. She ordained Rev. Master Myoho in 1977 and later named her as a Master of the Order.

Weekend Retreats
These retreats are for those who have already received meditation instruction from a monk or lay minister of our Order. Their flexible framework responds to the individual's needs. Local Sangha are invited to take part as non residents.

Seven Day Retreats
These are open to those who have already attended a weekend retreat at The Place of Peace. Guests may stay for all or part of the week.
