The Satipanya Buddhist Trust is grounded in the Buddhist Tradition of Theravada
as practised in South-East Asia.

Satipanya is located in Powys, Wales, in UK, south of Shrewsbury and near the Shropshire border.

We run retreats devoted to contemplative living and vipassana insight meditation
in the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma.

'Satipanya is a combination of two words:
sati which means awareness, mindfulness, attention and panya which refers to our intuitive intelligence.
These are the faculties of the Enlightened Mind.' Bhante Bodhidhamma - Spiritual Director.
