First glance at the 2012 Buddhafield Festival program

By lokabandhu on Tue, 10 Jul, 2012 - 17:58
Lokabandhu again, reporting on the huge range of beneficial activities to engage in at Buddhafield. Workshops in everything from Ecstatic Dance to Permaculture, as well as lots of different Buddhist groups offering spaces and time for practice. Lots of grooviness (brilliant music, wonderful food!), beautiful healing and body spaces, and lots of opportunities to go deeper and connect with others. Go get yourself a ticket if you haven’t already and experience the wonder of the Festival for yourself!
