The Dhamma Nikethanaya Buddhist Academy is an International Cultural Community Centre for Education, Meditation, Psychotherapy and Counselling.


The International Buddhist Centre Wales is a donation based centre of teaching based on the liberating, non dogmatic, psychologically sound teachings of Buddha Sakyamuni.

Our focus is on the teaching and practice of Samatha Bhavana (calming/concentration meditation) and of Satipatthana Vipassana (Insight Meditation based on the 4 foundations of mindfulness) in the tradition of Ven. Mahasi Sayadaw, and as taught by Phra Dhammamangkhalachan at Wat Phradhatu Sri Chom Thong Voravihara, in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The Buddha saw a Lotus at the core of every sentient being, the potential for all to realize fundamental reality and break free from negative emotions, wrong thinking and unskillful behavior.

Based on that principle, we welcome people from all traditions and belief systems, regardless of race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation or social status. We offer a warm welcome to anyone interested in meditation practice and the teachings of the 'Self Enlightened One'.
