This Week @ Sangha

This week Jampa will give an overview of Tibetan Buddhism. I'm sure it will be of interest, and there will be time to ask questions about this other valuable buddhist tradition.

Also, I am asking for expressions of interest from families wanting to bring their children on retreat. I would be happy to teach a 3 day retreat at Gorrick's Run, the Sydney Zen Centre's beautiful retreat centre near St. Alban's, sometime next year.
Several years ago I did retreats with the Sydney Zen Centre where children were an added bonus, and I feel that is something missing in our insight tradition.
It would be a camping retreat, but there are wonderful facilities there - a large meditation hall, a kitchen and dining room, one upstairs bedroom, outside toilets and showers, with water heated in a chip heater.
Parents would have primary responsibility for their own children, but we would arrange a roster for them to have time out and for others to do different activities with the children, like bushwalking and art.
If this idea appeals to you, then contact me at: betsyfaen@gmail.com, or 9913-2979, 0403 871 605.
I would want a core group of parents to help organise and run this. I envision that it will be a small group, and lots of fun!
