From time to time we organise various activities with the aim of developing and strengthening our sense of spiritual community.
For those who are interested and able to attend, we organise a day out to one of the monasteries on a shared lift basis. As mentioned previously, we attend ALBA days at the monastery and attend WESAK days at either Chithurst or Amaravati. We have conducted three Death Cafes in order to support people talking about issues they have around death – something the Buddha actively encouraged us to do on a daily basis in order to come to terms with the fact that death is inevitable. Sometimes, we hold sangha or practice events at a member's home, with a shared lunch and just generally getting to know each other better, an important support for our practice..
