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. Located in Middletown, Connecticut, we are open to the public; no experience necessary.
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 gatherings, family practice meetings, a 12 Step group, end of life programs, retreats, mindfulness, meditation and contemplative practices, social and cultural events, and plenty of opportunities to learn about and practice Buddhism in the contemporary American context.
