Community is essential to effective Buddhist practice. It’s not only a source of support, friendship and the pleasure of the company of positive, like-minded people. In its highest form, it’s one of the three refuges at the very heart of Buddhism, alongside the Buddha and the Dharma. Join us to explore, enjoy and celebrate the sangha at WLBC and beyond.
