What is the Buddhist Faith Fellowship?

The Buddhist Faith Fellowship is an open, nurturing, and non-judgmental spiritual community that is dedicated to realizing our human potential by transforming suffering into happiness, well-being, and tranquility of mind. Originally, we were located in Middletown, Connecticut but since the Covid-19 health crisis we have been meeting at various locations in Central Connecticut and online. We are open to the public; and no experience necessary to participate.

Established in 2001, we are one of Connecticut's most established Buddhist organizations. Since then, with the vision and guidance of our founding teacher, Senpai Daishin, the Fellowship has offered a full array of spiritual activities that include bimonthly Practice & Talk and Stoa Buddhist gatherings, weekly 12 Step Buddhist group, end of life programs, and plenty of other opportunities to learn about and practice Buddhism in the contemporary American context.

Visit our main web site for calendar of event and plenty of information on Buddhist philosophy and practice. Take a look at our web site @ http://bffct.org/bff (http://bffct.org/bff/)

We practice quiet sitting meditation, sacred chants, mindfulness, and contemplation and application of the teachings.
