The Chalice Well Trust’s ‘Many Paths, One Source’ Festivals explore how the wisdom and practice of the world’s spiritual traditions can inform and improve our lives today.

2019 | Exploring the Practice & Philosophy of Buddhism

1-9 June 2019

Buddhism is an ancient spiritual path to self-realisation that has been followed for over 2,500 years and is the fourth largest religion in the world, practised by an estimated 500 million people.

In 2019 Chalice Well Trust will be holding a unique and ground-breaking festival, featuring some of the main streams of Buddhism - Theravada, Mahayana, Vajrayana and Zen - will be explored, offering both a comprehensive perspective on the breadth of the philosophy and the opportunity to experience what lies at the heart of Buddhism.

The Trust’s intention is that participants will benefit from;

religious understanding through direct experience

ways to quieten the mind and live in the present moment

access and experience of the sacred through the arts & Buddhist practice

a developed sense of recognising ourselves in others

being part of a strong and supportive spiritual community

resources and simple practices to benefit their everyday lives

improved mental well-being through mindfulness techniques 

ancient Buddhist wisdom in light of modern scientific discovery
