Buddhist Action Month began for some members of the Sheffield sangha on Sunday May 29, with the day retreat ‘Natural Dharma’ a Work that Reconnects day in a wonderful woodland setting. It was the first proper event hosted by Kuladitya and Cecilie in their woodland (and gorgeous yurt!), which they are slowly but surely restoring from Pine plantation to Oak woodland.

I hope you’re all enjoying the ending of the rain and the threatening of spring! As we move into March, make sure that the date of the next younger sangha evening is in your diaries - Saturday 16th March, this time led by Kate. We’ll be exploring the Buddha’s decision to teach the Dharma after his enlightenment, and the profound vision he had which inspired him to do so.

Hope to see you there!

Exploring the Karaniya Metta Sutta - March 15, 2015
