Natural Dharma

Natural Dharma

To begin the  UK Buddhist Action Month in Sheffield we are offering a cycle of the ‘Work that Reconnects.’

The central teaching of the Buddha, pratitya-samutpada, means we never act in isolation; our actions will always have consequences.

Drawing on the Dharma, the Work that Reconnects strengthens our capacity to see those connections and to act effectively and sustainably in a deeply troubled world. 

This is the first Sheffield event to take place in Kuladitya and Cecilia’s yurt and woodland in the Peak District, fantastic!
