FWBO Scotland is a community of people who practice Buddhism in the context of the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (FWBO). We have 7 groups and 3 centres in Scotland, each is independently organised and locally managed.  We are dedicated to creating the conditions best suited to the practice of meditation, Buddhist ethics and the study of the Buddha's teaching in the modern world.

The Glasgow and Edinburgh centres offer various activities meeting  a wide range of needs - yoga, taiji, pain management, social action, meditation and Buddhist study. 

Dhanakosa is our retreat centre in Balquhidder on the banks of Loch Voil in The Trossachs.  They offer a fantastic programme of ranging from yoga and massage to intensive meditation retreats.

You are welcome to come along to one of the local groups.  We meditate together weekly and usually study and discuss some aspect of practice.
