Nordic Kadampa Meditation Centre

Everybody welcome

Nordic Kadampa Meditation Centre is located in the heart of Majorstuen, Oslo.

We offer classes, courses and retreats in meditation and Modern Buddhism.

The centre opened at our new location in autumn 2017 and offers an escape from the business of daily life in the heart of the city.
