Northern Women’s GFR Weekend starts: CANCELLED
Fri 9th Nov, 2018
We’re sorry, but this weekend’s retreat has been cancelled to allow people to attend the funeral of our teacher and founder, Urgyen Sangharakshita. Details of the funeral and vigil
A weekend retreat for women who have asked for ordination in the Triratna Buddhist Order, along with Dharmacharinis in the Northern region. Led by Santasiddhi, Taravandana, Acharashraddha and team, the weekend is an excellent opportunity to meet other women in the North who want to join the Order.
The Lion’s Roar of the Buddha and the Lion’s Roar of Bhante
In this fiftieth Anniversary year of the Order, we will follow on from the theme of the Convention in Bodh Gaya and rejoice in the Buddha and our teacher Sangharakshita, acknowledging our good fortune in finding the Dharma and a community in which to practice. Through meditation, ritual, study and discussion we will explore together the Lion’s Roar of the Buddha and Bhante.
