About Us

The Dhyana Centre is a self-governing branch (Lodge) of the Theosophical Society in England and Wales, registered charity no. 1167737.

The Centre operates as a community service in London for the sole purpose of teaching meditation and encouraging its practice as a spiritual discipline. All its activities are free of charge, being funded entirely by voluntary donations from its members and participants. It is strictly ‘non-trading’, has no paid staff and no commercial links of any type.

Like any Theosophical Society branch, the Dhyana Centre has a formal membership structure details of which can be seen on the Membership page, but all its sessions are public and open to non-members (fellowship of the Theosophical Society is entirely voluntary).

From its inception in 1991 until mid-2023, the Centre was based at the Theosophical Society’s headquarters at 50 Gloucester Place in Marylebone. When the latter decided to close 50 Gloucester Place in order to move to a new administrative base in Nottingham, the Centre was obliged to re-locate. Since then, it has been functioning exactly the same as before but at two separate new venues in central London: Rudolf Steiner House in Marylebone and Essex Unitarian Church in Notting Hill Gate, see here for details.

Despite this re-location, the Centre has been able to maintain its traditional schedule of Tuesday, Friday and Sunday meetings every week (see the activities page for details or the weekly schedule for dates and times).
