2nd FWBO/Triratna International Retreat underway, 400+ on site

The FWBO/Triratna International Retreat started today, with over 400 people now on site - from the UK, India, US, Austria, France (lots from France!), Germany (even more from Germany!), Denmark, Holland, Mexico, and elsewhere.

We’ve put together a little video showing the arrivals, some ‘hellos’, and a few of the shrines and rupas around the site.

The main programme begins tomorrow, with talks each morning which we hope to bring you as soon as local upload speeds allow! The three days of the retreat are themed Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, with Monday night - Sangha Day - seeing a collective ceremony to celebrate the change of name of the Movement from 'FWBO' to Triratna Buddhist Community.
