We’ll focus on gaining a better understanding of these, as well as engage in our annual celebration of deepening our friendships with each other.
How do I know which events to attend?
“Experienced” level events assume prior exposure the fundamentals of Buddhism as taught by Triratna Buddhist Comunity as well as experience with the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana (the development of loving-kindness) meditations.
