Pop-up Retreat

Spiritual Community in a Divided World

26-29 Nov | Online | Free to join
(with 'build-up' events from 23 Nov)

With the UK and much of the world back in lockdown we’re faced with the challenge of yet more time spent isolated from the people in our lives. Here at the LBC we want to respond with a vision of genuine community.

In the last week of November we’re laying on extra events, ramping up into a full retreat programme from the evening of Thursday 26th. Culminating in our annual Sangha Day festival, the retreat will involve plenty of opportunities to discuss the Buddha’s teachings with others as well as inspiring talks, arts events, meditation and more. Join us to celebrate a universal ideal of community and friendship.

Sign up for free below and have a look at the full programme.
