I thought some of you might be interested in this link to English Heritage who are writing about 'how various traditions and lineages have adapted to the British social and cultural context, … through the buildings that Buddhist communities build and use'.

Hi there -
I am not going to go to the International retreat beginning this friday 23rd May and going to Tuesday 27th may. I have a ticket, a single room (but if you had a freind who wanted to go and share the room, they could buy a ticket and do so as it has 2 beds in it) and a single ticket to Colwall leaving Paddington on Fri morning. If you would like to go in my place and pay the LBC for the ticket please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07931 461 553

Just to let people know about classes at the Arts Centre on Monday nights in Skinner Releasing Technique, an accessible approach to free movement and dance that starts from relaxation, visualisation and body awareness. The first class, next week (13th Jan) is free for people new to the approach. I find the movement work a very useful support for meditation (and vice versa), and it would be great to have Sangha folk join...

Here's a this fascinating interview between Maitrivajri and our architect Cindy Walters about the plans, vision and challenge of bringing about bespoke Buddhist Retreat Centre in the the modern West. The video is divided into three sections in which Cindy talks about the project, the site and the brief.

I help run the bookshop with Vajrabhandu, and thought I'd let all receptionists know that there are some new cushions an d mats for sale. They have price list on the bookshelf next to the Sangharaksita section.
There are still some of the smaller 'old' cushions for sale but they are individually priced. I've removed the old price labels from the shelves.
There is an amazing account on twitter,https://twitter.com/BuddhistGirl. It hasn't been updated in over a year but the tweets are incredibly mettaful. Here are some examples:
Always, this prayer is somewhere in my heart: May you be happy, healthy, and move through this next moment with grace and ease.
invites us to send lovingkindness to the next person we see: May they be happy, know peace, find freedom, & move through life with ease.
Can we generate kind thoughts for someone we don't know? This stranger, like me, wants happiness, freedom, and peace.
I want to have a heart with that much mettafulness, and radiate such goodness always!
