1:30-3:00  Sangha Meeting--Vision for the Future: During our Annual General Meeting in June and in its wake, ideas for what might provisionally be called a semi-rural practice centre began to percolate. A place for retreat practice, residential practice, gardening practice? Even co-housing was mentioned as a possibility. This may sound like an impossible vision for a sangha that can just keep up with paying the rent. And yet...

Come share in creating a vision, asking who, what, where, when, why and how! This will be fun and creative--grounded in dharma wisdom. Everyone is welcome!
