17 Lower Redland Road, Redland
Price : 20
Please join us to celebrate the start of the autumn term with a weekend of practice in our newly decorated shrine room.

The weekend will be arranged over four sessions including a work period after lunch on the Saturday, a meal together on the Saturday evening and conclude with a Shambhala Sadhana feast at the end of the day on Sunday.

Following the theme of uplifting our environment the work period will consist of tlc for the courtyard which has suffered during the hot weather this summer.
We hope to provide a situation where people can practice shamatha in the shrine room downstairs as well as their own practice in the upper shrine room.
Please feel free to attend one or as many sessions as you wish (£5 per session)
