Special Events

At weekends we often have day retreats for meditation or Dharma study, or for particular sangha groups to get together.

Our three major festivals celebrate the Three Jewels and are opportunities for the whole Sangha to practise together. Buddha Day on the full moon of May/June celebrates the awakening of the Buddha, Dharma Day on the full moon of July marks his first communication of his awakened experience, and Sangha Day on the full moon of November celebrates the community of followers of the Buddha.

We also go away for weekend retreats in the countryside – info here.
