Annual Sangha Celebration

Hermitage of the Awakened Heart, North Wales
Lama Shenpen Hookham

Annual Sangha Celebration - Friday 5th - Sunday 7th June 2020

This year’s Annual Sangha Celebration will take the form of an online weekend retreat. 

We will gather together online as a Sangha to meditate and renew our shared commitment to the Path to Awakening. Everyone in the Sangha is warmly welcome.
 
There will be teachings from Lama Shenpen, ceremonies of taking Refuge and taking the Bodhisattva Vow, meditation sessions, and opportunities for connection and discussion.

Please book here. Please rebook even if you previously booked for the Annual Sangh Celebration when it was happening at the Hermitage before COVID struck. 

If you've already booked, detailed information for participants is on the event microsite here: https://sites.google.com/ahs.org.uk/annualsanghacelebration/home

Do I need to attend all the sessions?

Obviously it’s a better experience for you if you can attend all of the sessions. However, if for some reasons there are sessions you can’t come to, then you’re still very welcome to attend what you can. 

What’s the timetable?

What will I have to do to take part?

You will need a laptop, tablet or smartphone. We will use Zoom to meet together online, which is free, simple and easy. 
Ideally you’d have a place in your home where you meditate where you could also connect online, and you would be able to set aside the whole weekend as a retreat: it’s an online retreat! But really whatever arrangement you have at home will be fine.
