Event description

Description

"Without community, there is no liberation . . . but community must not mean a shedding of our differences, nor the pathetic pretense that these differences do not exist."

- Audre Lorde


"It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. And the practice can be carried out as a group, as a city, as a nation."

- Thich Nhat Hanh


“Without inner change there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.”
angel Kyodo williams




5 yrs ago our community began with one person, a set of keys and the intention to create a beloved community, which would allow the dharma to be shared with others and to bring dharma teachers to our island city.

From one group a month, with 4 people and a singing bell, we have now grown to a community of 300+ !
We now run several open access groups every week, host teachers from around the world several times year, run daylong city retreats, workshops, a beach meditation group during the Summer and a food surplus porject to support the homesless in the city.

We have existed and grown entirely on the practice of dana, the generosity of the community to support itself and provide a space, which aspires to always nurture community and connection and strive to be a community which reflects the rich diversity of the island city in which we live.

We are committed to creating a truly inclusive Sangha. We welcome people from all social identities, including all ethnicities, classes, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, abilities and cultures.

We are excited about the future and what we can do together!

TICKETS ARE FREE.
THERE IS ALSO THE OPTION TO PURCHASE A DONATION TICKET.
YOUR DONATION WILL GO ENTIRELY TO PARCS (Portsmouth Abuse and Rape Counselling Service)

Come and celebrate with us as we enjoy good food, good music and good company, as our beloved, radical spritual community turns 5!
