I've just moved back to Cornwall, UK after many years away and I would like to join a local Buddhist group. I am just starting out on this path and would like to meet other Buddhists for encouragement and hopefully some good teachings.
I was lucky to receive some teaching from Chamtrul Rinpoche when he visited the UK recently, and I am also studying introductory books on practice by the Dalai Lama, so I have plenty to think about and get on with. However, I am concerned about learning in isolation.
I have studied the list of Buddhist organisations on Buddhanet - it looks like a lot is happening in Cornwall - but I don't recognise any standard schools and I am sure you can understand that I want to tread carefully at first. The New Kadampa Tradition meet regularly nearby but I have found that this tradition is not for me.
I am based in SE Cornwall and would be very pleased if anyone could recommend any groups/meetings within striking distance that they have personally heard are beneficial.
