Join Mokshini, Karunadarshin, Sudhana, Nandavajra and others from the Devon Sangha to travel to the Bristol Buddhist Centre for the day to mark “50 years of the Triratna Buddhist Community”! It would be lovely if there was a whole group of us from Exeter going up. The plan is to all go on a train together on the 8.23am from Exeter St David’s to Bristol Temple Meads, and return in the evening on the 18.44pm departure from Temple Meads.
Another lovely opportunity to practice with other friends from our sangha in this beautiful place on Dartmoor, near Manaton. We’ll be looking at how human beings need a mythic aspect in their lives, (different from fantasy) and how we create it. Puja in the forest or on the moor very likely! £75 / £60 low income ‘suggested donation’ but contact us if you’re desperate to come but broke.

Unfortunately the weekend is now fully booked but there will be further retreats in 2016.
