support our work:meet the team!
After many hours and lots of generous help from a team of volunteers, we have transformed the old ‘Plume of Feathers’ pub into our new Southampton Buddhist Centre.
On the eve of their grand opening on 8th September - the last day of the ‘old’ before they formally became the ‘new’ - Amritadasa led an evening of meditation and quiet reflection to begin the weekend of celebrations. Next they held an Open Day beginning with a ribbon cutting opening ceremony, with an opportunity to mingle, look round the centre, introduce family and friends, learn meditation practices, and enjoy a short talk and Q&A session on Buddhism. To wrap the weekend up there was a day of practice and dedication of the centre, with a chance to meditate together, hear some short talks and engage in a puja.
