DETAILS OF REGULAR EVENTS

FRIENDS OF VAJRASANA

The Sangha courtyard at Vajrasana

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

If you have a few hours to spare and enjoy fresh air, good company and beautiful surroundings, why not join us for one of our Friends of Vajrasana working parties, when we carry out jobs to help maintain the grounds? (See below for the date of the next working party.)

If you’d like to join us, you’ll need to bring vegetarian food to share for lunch. You may also want to bring gardening tools (if you have them).

It would be useful to know in advance how many people to expect for each working party, so if you’d like to come along, email Dridhakarin at dridhakarin@gmail.com

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!
