Sadayasihi is reunited with Gina Plant Cabrita and Christine Thuring who all first met on the 2014 Triratna International Gathering. They recall that Gathering and how, for each of them, it marked a pivotal moment in their lives - and what they did afterwards.

The conversation then turns to day 2 of the 2019 Triratna International Gathering and what’s been happening. We hear more about the significance of the international dimension - in particular, how coming together in large numbers can both be an important opportunity to ‘plug in’ and become resourced but also to experience appreciation for our Sanghas.

Recorded at Adhisthana, 24th August 2019.

That was so wonderful, thanks for pushing/ pulling us into conversation, Sadayasihi. This opportunity to reflect was actually quite a strong experience, which I only fully realised afterwards, particularly when hearing the quality of my utterances (which were as spontaneous as us, and not as refined as I might have liked). Well done, us :-) With metta <3 <3 <3
