The Order of Buddhist Contemplatives [OBC] follows the practice of the Serene Reflection Meditation tradition, known as Ts'ao-Tung Ch'an in China and Sōtō Zen in Japan. It was established in 1978 by Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett as the international umbrella organization for monasteries, priories [local temples], and meditation groups. These are currently in Britain, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States.
The largest centre in Britain Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in Northumberland. The monastic community [men and women] offers retreats and other events for anyone who wishes to learn about meditation and its relevance in daily living.
