The Trust's purpose is to foster the development of Samatha Meditation, a traditional technique of self-cultivation leading to inner-strength, tranquility and knowledge. The meditation method has its origins in ancient India, but developed over recent centuries in Thailand and was brought to Britain in 1963.
The Trust has a national centre in Wales, a converted farmhouse with individual accommodation, forest meditation huts and a purpose built shrine hall, where regular courses for beginners and experienced meditators are held in a rural setting. The grounds consist of more than 80 acres of hill country, including rivers, footpaths and substantial areas of woodland.
Local classes offering instruction in meditation are held in many parts of Britain.
