Published on May 11th 2020, in News

Our weekly online programme has been extended to include the following meditation and Buddhism webinars, workshops and courses.


Earth, Heart and Sky: A Six Day On-line Retreat 

Monday 1 June – Saturday 6 June

Led by Paramananda and Bodhilila

Through dwelling in our own heart we are connected to the ‘anima mundi’ or soul of the world. Symbolically we can understand the heart as containing both what is most intimate and most universal within us. We will be exploring how a body based poetic approach to meditation can help us to feel more comfortable in our own skins and more at home in the world.
