Dancing the Unknown: Movement Improvisation

Sunday, March 25, 2018 - 10:30 to 16:30

In this workshop physical and vocal exercises and games are used to promote creativity, mindfulness and a greater in the moment awareness of body and mind. They act like a mirror in which we can gently and kindly observe ourselves.

Working with the body is very effective in supporting meditation, providing the tools to enable embodied transformation. The spirit of improvisation encourages us to listen to ourselves and research how we respond to ourselves and each other in performance and in life. We discover what choices we make and where our interest and...

Dharma Day Festival

Sunday, July 29, 2018 - 10:00 to 16:30

Soon after his Enlightenment the Buddha rose from where he had been sitting, went to find his former disciples and shared his experience with them. This event, which happened at a place called Sarnath in northern India, might be called the start of the Buddhist religion and it is this that Dharma Day celebrates.

On Dharma Day there are often readings from the Buddhist scriptures and a chance to reflect deeply on their contents. Above all, on Dharma Day Buddhists feel profoundly grateful that the Buddha and other Enlightened masters did share their teachings with other people....

Sangha Day Festival

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

All of us need other people to learn from. If we are to practise the Dharma we need the example and teaching of others who have done so before us, especially those who have gained insight into the nature of reality themselves.

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.
