History of the Group
Our Kent based group is fortunate to have had an association with the ordained Theravada Sangha for nearly 40 years. Joan Hamze, one of our founders, invited Bhikkhus from the London Sri Lankan vihara to Kent in the mid 1970’s.
The group originally met in the Friends Meeting House in Union Street, Maidstone. In 1998 meetings transferred to the Blackthorn Trust, a Rudolf Steiner based medical practice, also in Maidstone.
