This is a chance to meet up and practise together.

We will look directly at our need for supportive conditions to help us develop an ethical and meditation practise

There will be a talk on how the sangha -the Triratna order and community- has developed over time to better meet people's needs and specifically exploring the provison in and around the Ipswich Buddhist Centre
