Still a few places left on New Society event in Birmingham, 17-19 June

Jnanarakshita writes: 

Dear Friends,  This is to let you know that we’ve had lots of bookings for this event, but there’s still a few places left if you want to join us.

On the weekend we’ll explore some of the principles and practices of creating Sangha together. What are the advantages and the challenges of Dharma work and of communal living? 
The emphasis will be on achievable action and practical next steps, and the programme will include:

- a presentation by Vajragupta: "the New Society – why we need it and how to get involved"
- the launch of a new guide to starting a community, devised by Lokabandhu and others
- mini-talks from 5 or 6 young people who've recently joined or pioneered communal projects
- puja and shrine room practice
- time to meet with others

The New Society in principle and practice
7.30pm Friday 17 June to 4.00pm Sunday 19 June at Birmingham Buddhist Centre
 Cost: dana (by donation).  Accommodation available.
To book, or for more information: email Vidyaruci, matt.notmatt [at]
