Greetings and Happy Losar - Tibetan New Year. We will be celebrating this over three days: 5th, 6th, and 7th of February. So please note that there will not be a meditation group gathering on Tuesday 5th February.
The Espresso Retreat on January 12th was a marvellous and inspiring day. Thank you to everyone who attended. The next two Espresso Retreats will be this coming Saturday, 2nd February, and then on the 9th March. Please see below for the schedule for these day-long retreats. The topic for the study session in February is namkha. Please have a look at this page on aroencyclopaedia.org for more information on this topic:
