You are warmly invited to an All-Sangha gathering for Buddhists of any tradition.
The themes for the day will be Celebration & Compassion. This gathering will be a chance to meet and share news, and also celebrate the approval of planning permission for a meditation centre at the Gomde Scotland.
No RSVP is necessary, though if you do know you’ll attend, do let us know so we have some ideas of numbers. And any volunteers for set-up or clean-up are much appreciated, as many hands do make for light work.
Potluck lunch – please bring a vegetarian dish to share.
Between Brodie and Auldearn – please contact for directions
