Temporary and permanent spaces available at Maitrimandal, an LBC women’s community
One permanent and one temporary space for Order Members and Mitras will be available from September in our lovely, friendly community, near the LBC, in the heart of east London.
We are a community of Order Members and experienced GFR Mitras (plus 1 elderly cat). We live on a tree-lined street, 3 minutes from a glorious park. We also share a beautiful garden with 2 neighbouring communities.
We all contribute to household tasks such as food-shopping, cleaning, and cooking, and enjoy catching-up over dinner when we can. We do come together more intentionally to connect and practice in our shrine room at our weekly community night.
We were given the name Maitrimandal by Sangharakshita as a teaching that we are all connected through friendship. As a community, we aspire to live from this in our commitment to each other’s well-being and spiritual growth. We would love to find someone who would like to live out our aspiration with us.
Get in touch with us by emailing maitrimandal206 [at] gmail.com. In this email let us know (1) about yourself, (2) your aspirations, (3) your working ground, and (4) why you want to join a community. Please get in contact by 26th June.
If you’d find it helpful to have an informal chat, do feel free to email us and we will happily respond.
