I want to say something about living in community today. I took the two photos above this morning at 6.45 am as Matty and I were finishing our morning mediation. 
We were up in the Copper House as our regular ‘Batcave’ meditation space has been taken over by renovation goings on. 


Whilst living communally has its challenges it also has its rich rewards and sitting in meditation together in the tranquil dawn hours under a full moon after listening to Matty give a reading from ‘In the Buddha’s Words’ captures some of these. 


To live in a community committed to helping each other grow and develop is a precious thing. This evening we cooked dinner together and reported in on how we are traveling both in the mundane sense and also as Buddhist practitioners. 


We have two more rooms coming up soon as the attic conversion draws to a close so if living in a Buddhist community has appeal feel free to drop me an email.


Hope you can join us for meditation this week
