Price: 
£0.00

A weekend finding and negotiating new ways to thrive at the edge between what we guard; what binds and silences us, and the precious flame of our potential that longs to be lived.  It is a mixture of experiential Dharma teaching, pair and group process work.

The intention is to help you establish internal supports so that you can fruitfully turn towards and honour your struggles whilst recognising your natural capacity to find the next step that your life is calling out of you.

Sangha Day Festival

Sunday, November 18, 2018 - 10:00 to 16:30

It’s a joyous thing to mark the fact that we don’t have to go it alone – to rejoice in our friends and those who inspire us every day. 

So on Sangha Day we celebrate both the ideal of creating a spiritual community, and also the actual spiritual community which we are trying to build. 

Schedule TBA.
