A weekend of teachings in the beautiful surrounds of The Abbey at Sutton Courtnay, in Oxfordshire. 

Now is the time to think
Of what heart connections mean.
Now is the time to think
Of what goes beyond birth and death.

In this year, where our themes have been Pranidhana and Death, we have an opportunity to gather with our Sangha friends in this beautiful Oxford abbey, renewing and strengthening connections that go beyond birth and death.

This weekend, Lama Shenpen, Sherab and Lama Dashon will be leading us in an exploration of how our practice and our mandala connections can guide us through the bardos of living, dying and death.

There will be meditation, reflection, connection and celebration. We're really looking forward to seeing you there.

We are delighted to be offering this event, our first such gathering since lockdown, and organised by a group of sangha members. It will run from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, accommodation will be at the Abbey and all catering will be provided. The event will be in-person only and we suggest you book your place early to avoid disappointment as places are limited. Accommodation will be in shared and single rooms, with the option for local members to come daily as off-site attendees. This event will not be run on a donations basis as usual, as we have to cover the venue costs; prices will be as follows: single room £385; shared room £295; off-site attendee £175, (all prices per person, including catering, for the weekend, to be paid in full on booking). Our support charity Sustain is offering bursary places for people who cannot otherwise attend due to financial constraints. 

Accomodation is now fully booked, but you're still welcome to take part if you can arrange your own accomodation off-site. 

You will find details of the venue, its location and how to get there by public transport on the Abbey website. There is the option for attendees to stay on at the Abbey for the Sunday night - this is not part of the event and will not be bookable via this website, if you wish to stay please book your accommodation and meals direct with the Abbey, please email Pascaline Bazart < [email protected][email protected] >. We suggest you do this when you book the weekend as we cannot guarantee availability of the Abbey rooms once our event has finished.
