Every summer we have the quirkily named “Summertime Specials”, a series of Dharma talks, and this year’s theme is The Five Precepts. To accompany this series we’re having Vegan Summer - the GBC is going totally vegan for six weeks! How best to put the 1st Precept into action?!
Starting on Thursday 18th July, we’ll launch the Vegan Summer and Summertime Specials with an evening dedicated to the precepts, introducing the talks and celebrating with a festive puja. We’ll enjoy delicious vegan baking and also launch our Vegan Summer Raffle, with prizes from local restaurants and food producers.
The Summertime Special talks will then run every Thursday at 7.30pm until 22 August: 25th July - 2nd Precept - Open-handed generosity, by Danabhadri 1st August - 3rd Precept - Stillness, simplicity and contentment, by Gunasiddhi 8th August - 1st Precept - Deeds of loving kindness, by Maitrisiddha 15th August - 4th Precept - Truthful communication, by Abhayavaca 22nd August - 5th Precept - Mindfulness, clear and radiant, by Vairocana
