Event Series Event Series: Saturday Afternoon Series

Saturday Series: Colours, Sounds, Symbols of Enlightenment

Sat 15th Jun : 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Buddha mandala

A Saturday afternoon series from Suryaka, Taralocana and friends, exploring the mandala of the five Buddhas.

The sessions are here at the Centre and recordings may appear later on our YouTube channel. Each session stands alone so it’s fine if you miss any; just come to the ones you can. And no need to book or to bring anything special. Arrive from 1 pm with some lunch to settle in and have an informal chat if you like, and you’re also welcome to stay on afterwards for a cuppa.

Who is this Event for?

It's for anyone who has completed an introductory Buddhism course here, or has attended Saturday morning Tools for Living Your Life for six weeks or more. Please get in touch if you’re not sure. We hope this series will help bring the wider Sangha together, from newer folk to Order members.
