Our Health & Safety

Health considerations

Please note that our events are not intended as a treatment for mental health conditions. Meditation and periods of silence can be experienced by some as quite challenging. If you have any concerns that you might be detrimentally affected by participating in one of our day events or retreats, please discuss your concerns with a relevant mental health professional before registering. 

Should you experience any difficulties whilst participating in one of our events and require support, please contact a relevant mental health professional as we are not able to offer support through a crisis online. 

Looking out for each other – safeguarding

As Buddhists we seek to live harmlessly. ALBA (Amaravati Lay Buddhist Association) recognises that ensuring the welfare and well-being of all is the responsibility of everyone. In addition, it recognises that children, young people, and adults at risk can be the victims of harm.  If you are concerned about an individual or have a Safeguarding concern, please contact [email protected] If a child, young person or adult is in immediate danger please call the emergency services without delay.
