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!
