Would you like to live in a London community for men that’s relaxed and easy going, but serious about practice, centred on friendship and mutual support?
Uddiyana Community in Leytonstone, London, is looking for a new person to join them from 1 October.
Here’s what the community have to say:
“We’re a men’s community of five - currently one order member (Vajradaka) and four mitras training for ordination. There’s a lot of laughter, great conversation and sharing of creative interests, some top notch cuisine, and we host a great party. We’re an open community, so partners are welcome to stay over sometimes. And underpinning all of it is a serious commitment to Dharma practice. There’s meditation and breakfast together every morning, and a couple of day/weekend community retreats a year. When things get tough, we make sure we’re there for each other. Weekly community night is a mainstay.
We live in a spacious house, which we make an effort to take care of, with a lovely garden full of roses and fruit trees, about 10 minutes from Leytonstone Tube and from Leyton Midland Road Overground (25 mins to the LBC). The green open space of the Hollow Ponds area of Epping forest is also about 10 minutes away. More information on our blogsite: https://uddiyanacommunity.wordpress.com/
Rent is £434 per month including all bills and we have a food kitty of 25 pounds a week that pays for all communal groceries.
We are looking for someone who actively wants to live in a community, and has a regular meditation practice. Other than that, we’re open to anyone from the Triratna sangha, regardless of your age or level of experience.
If you are interested, do get in touch with a short email about yourself and why you would like to join to uddiyana.community [at] gmail.com”
