    We are excited to introduce a new female voice to our programme. Don’t miss this opportunity to be guided, and to learn, from one of the senior monastics in western Theravāda Buddhism.During this time of retreat we will look at the significance of spiritual friendship (kalayanamitta) in our lives. The Buddha emphasised this over and over again as a source of encouragement and guidance. We will explore what this implies and how we can create conditions for these qualities to manifest – both for our own benefit, and also that of others and the world we live in. Noble Silence will be encouraged throughout the retreat, although there also will be times for questions and discussion. There will be morning and evening pujas and time for rest and, Ajahn Candasiri’s recent book, ‘The Secret of Happiness’ will be freely available for anyone who would like it.     Click here for one Ajahn’s dharma talks “On Being Right”
