July Newsletter – Aro Ling Cardiff Buddhist Centre

The ​Aro Ling Buddhist Centre in Cardiff is a lovely place to be on a sunny day. The high vaulted ceiling with sky lights makes it bright and airy. The room is decorated in the traditional Nyingma style, with a deep blue ceiling, and stripes of orange and green on yellow and deep red. It is not
easy to express the atmosphere this manner of decoration evokes​. I​t is peaceful and calming, whilst ​also ​enlivening awareness.  

As we approach July and August, the season of holidays and retreats, there will be some periods when Aro Ling is closed. Aro Ling​ will be closed from 1st July​ to ​13th July​ ​completely, as we will all be away for the summer encampment retreat​. This retreat, ​for the students of Ngakma Nor'dzin and Ngakpa 'ö-Dzin​, takes place in Shropshire​. Aro Ling will then reopen ​as usual ​until ​mid ​August. From 17th August till 21st September all daytime and weekend
courses will be suspended, with only the Tuesday evening meditation group running.

To summarise:
July ​01 - ​13​:​ closed completely​  
July 14​ - Aug ​16:​ open as usual
Aug ​17​ - Sept ​21: ​only the Tuesday evening meditation group running  
Sept ​22​​:​ ​opening hours back to normal and the start of the ​autumn programme
