Chairs' Letter – February 2022

By Jnanavaca on Tue, 1 Mar, 2022 - 13:39

Dear Order Members and Friends,

As one of her deputies, Ratnadharini asked me to write this month’s letter from the College.

Today, each time we hear and understand the Buddha’s teachings, that same wheel continues to turn.

With meditation, teaching, reflection and ritual, we’ll spend the day exploring together what it truly means to practice the Dharma, and how our actions can keep...

The Spiral Path

By Sophie_WLBCPublicity on Sat, 29 May, 2021 - 11:48

Over the six weeks of this course we will explore this inspiring trajectory through...
