Five spaces for men have become available on our Spiritual Rebirth retreat with Vessantara in two weeks time...

Mon, 7 Sep, 2015 - 16:46

This is the third meditation retreat led by Vessantara at Adhisthana circling round the mandala of spiritual practice. This time we come to spiritual rebirth. How can we deepen and strengthen our connection with Enlightenment, with our potential for limitless compassionate awareness beyond greed, hatred, and delusion, so that it then pervades all aspects of our Dharma life? We shall explore this through presentations from Vessantara, guided meditations, optional meditation reviews, ritual and puja, and with the support of several...

The Adhisthana community 'at home'

Mon, 6 Jul, 2015 - 13:01

Last week the resident community at Adhisthana spent a few days ‘at home’ together. There was some study led by Parami on the Dasadhamma Sutta - the ten points to be reflected on by one who has ‘gone forth’; we had couple of inspiring and energising sessions facilitated by Saddhanandi, evoking the vision of Adhisthana and imagining what it will become in five years time; and a day spent exploring how we live together as a community to serve that...

The Opening of The Sangharakshita Library

Thu, 8 Jan, 2015 - 15:40Right at the heart of Adhisthana is the Sangharakshita Library – a collection of books and artefacts collected by Bhante over his lifetime, plus a wealth of letters, papers, photos and images connected with him and his life. One of the most important roles of Adhisthana will be caring for this precious legacy. It will be a way of future generations having a tangible connection with the founder of our sangha, and getting a sense of him and his life’s...
