One of the things that I appreciate about our Sangha at Sheffield Buddhist Centre is our ethos of generosity in creating a Sangha together and putting the Buddha’s teaching into practice in our lives. So it feels very appropriate that this Saturday there is an opportunity to come together on a Sangha Works morning to make the building and the garden beautiful. As I’m writing this I can see Maitrivasin preparing for the morning, including making sure that there are procedures in place to help not spread coronavirus such as one way systems in the building, social distancing and lots of hand sanitising gel available. The Sangha Works mornings are running for the next four Saturdays, so please do come along.
We have a very special guest speaker this Tuesday at Sangha night. Vajratara is renowned for her inspiring and creative talks and so we are delighted that she will be giving the Sangha night talk.
Technology is allowing us to participate in retreats in innovative ways and from the 2nd -9th August there is an opportunity to be on retreat online not only with other Sheffield Sangha members but with Sangha from Buddhist Centres in London, Dublin and Cambridge in the Online Summer Retreat. The theme is ‘The Fire of Joy’, taking inspiration from stories of Milarepa, the great 11th Century Tibetan Yogi. The retreat is open to everyone whatever your level of experience.
There are more details of Sangha works mornings and the Online retreat below, plus lots of other events taking place online and at the Centre.
With much metta and wishing you happiness in the week ahead,
Chair Sheffield Buddhist Centre
