DETAILS OF REGULAR EVENTS

FRIENDS OF VAJRASANA GARDENING DAYS

The Sangha courtyard at Vajrasana

Vajrasana Retreat Centre is an oasis of peace in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Oliver Wainwright of The Guardian described it as a ‘magnificent, modern Buddhist haven’.

The gardens at Vajrasana help to create its tranquil atmosphere, which benefits everyone who goes on retreat there. Keeping the gardens looking beautiful is a lot of work, and the gardener at Vajrasana, Dridhakarin, really appreciates our help.

A day like this is a great opportunity to spend time with like-minded people, cultivating not only plants, but also friendships! Everyone is welcome, so please feel free to invite your friends.

If you’d like to come and join in the fun, please bring vegetarian food to share for lunch, and let Dridhakarin know you’re planning on coming by emailing him at dridhakarin@gmail.com.

Next Friends of Vajrasana gardening day

Date: Tuesday, 14th August

Time: 10 am to 4 pm

Venue: Vajrasana Retreat Centre, Potash Farm, Walsham-le-Willows, IP31 3AR

Task: We will be working in the courtyards. If we have a large turnout there could be some hedge trimming, plus thistle removal with a very neat tool that makes the job a pleasure.

PUJA EVENINGS

August – no puja

November 12th
December 17th

Time: 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Venue: Vajrasana Retreat Centre, Potash Farm, Walsham-le-Willows, IP31 3AR

A typical Puja evening starts with time for socialising, includes a period of meditation (sometimes preceded by a short talk), and ends with a Buddhist ritual (usually the Sevenfold Puja).

Our Puja evenings are open to anyone who is familiar with Triratna meditation practices. There’s no need to book; just come along. We look forward to seeing you there!
