Shrine Room

Our Shrine Room or Small Gompa (Gompa: from the Tibetan dgon pa, literally meaning ‘remote place’ far away from the distractions of everyday life) is a unique space in London, decorated in the traditional stylised form of a Tibetan Buddhist temple. Many mediation practitioners have sat in this room for practice, contemplation and reflection, evident in the calm and tranquil atmosphere of the space reflected in its mediative qualities. 

We invite people of all backgrounds, faiths and approaches who may find value in this quiet and meditative space, to make use of the Small Gompa whenever the need arises; with soft lighting, Buddhist imagery and iconography to reflect upon and inspire, and a warm intimate feeling, this public room is open to all.
