The date is particularly chosen as being close to His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s birthday on 6th July. We went to Harewood House last year for this event and had such a delightful picnic and inspiring place for the meditation that we wanted to do it all over again!
Please contact Rowena tel 01904 656504 mobile 07552472491 or by email - firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come and either need or could offer transport.
If it’s easier for you to make your own way to Harewood please do and we can all meet up there.

VISIT TO SAMYE LING MONASTERY 22nd – 24th September
Situated in southern Scotland, Samye Ling was the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre to be established in the West just over 50 years ago. Over that time, it has grown steadily to become a much respected centre for Buddhist teaching and a beautiful place to visit. As a visitor at Samye Ling you can join in the daily routine of the monastery including prayers and meditation in the Temple and you can wander round the grounds as you wish. There is also a delightful Tibetan Tea Room in the grounds and also a very well stocked gift shop.
If you do book, please let Rowena know (contact details at the bottom of this page) so that we can try to arrange car shares; and let me know if you would be interested in joining a group tour of Samye Ling which costs £6 per person.
