#var:page_name# cover

We’re celebrating Triratna Day (the Triratna Buddhist Community’s 51st birthday) with a half day retreat. One of Triratna’s traditional emphases has been the place of the arts in the spiritual life and Sangharakshita, the founder of the order, has written that the Buddhist path itself is an 'ascent into beauty'

As well as some meditation, there will be an opportunity to share any piece of art, live music, recorded music, poetry or other kind of art that speaks to you of beauty. Contributions should be anything up to 5 minutes (but if you would like to contribute something longer, contact Akuppa via the centre email). So please do come along and share what inspires you! We will finish with a shared lunch at 1pm, so please bring along some vegan food if you'd like to stay for something to eat.
