Today the European Chairs continued their exploration of the culture of Triratna centres, with discussion groups about yesterday’s talk on Triratna’s Six Distinctive Emphases, followed by the presentation of a consultation document setting out defining characteristics of a Triratna centre and principles underlying its running.

There is broad willingness to ensure that the interpretation and application of the Six Emphases continues to evolve according to the needs of new generations of Buddhists.

The afternoon break saw many of us taking walks and naps or sitting out in the sun; several of us were sighted in the Colwall Coffee Shop!

See a list of the Six Distinctive Emphases.
