Tuesday 1st March Sangha Night
Prajna – Turning the Teachings into Practice
Having explored what spiritual wisdom is with Saddhavijaya, join us next Tuesday to learn a little of how to put the teachings into practice and get a taste of both living life with full attention and sailing the worldly winds.


On the 8th and 15th March we will delve into smrti, or mindfulness to conclude our current Sangha Night theme of the Five Spiritual Faculties.

Tuesday 22nd March we will rejoice in Ing, as we witness her becoming a mitra in a Sevenfold Puja, led by Nagasuri, visiting from Sydney to undertake Ing’s mitra ceremony, not to be missed.

Wednesday 23rd March will be the start of our Easter Retreat, Sailing The Worldly Winds (see separate email and webpage for more details).

Looking forward to sharing these activities and the Dharma with you as we move through the changing of the seasons.

Sailing the Worldly Winds

This is the theme of our five day residential retreat, happening over Easter, starting Wednesday evening, 23rd March 
and finishing Monday afternoon 28th March.

sailing_the_worldly_windsFive years on from its publication, the book by the same name continues to inspire and guide people from around the world in their practice of the Dharma. Described as a Buddhist way through the ups and downs of life, Vajragupta’s sharing of the Buddha’s teaching offers reflections, exercises and plentiful suggestions for living this life with a more balanced approach, how to develop a more even keel in the midst of life’s upheavals.

Join us on this retreat and not only learn how to sail and be a part of cultivating sangha, but also enjoy the wondrous bushland at Douglas Scrub, 37 hectares of native vegetation in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula, only 45 minutes from town (near McLaren Vale).

Further details will be available later and you can ring Dharmamodini to discuss any aspects of the retreat, but for now, we are encouraging you to get these dates in your diary and start making necessary plans and arrangements so you can commit to coming along. It is only seven weeks away!
