Celebrate Spring!

Buddhists celebrate spring, family fun for Liverpool sangha
Buddhist Spring Celebration for kids of all ages!

Come and celebrate Spring at The Hermitage Buddhist retreat centre this Thursday 29th March! An opportunity to come and play in the green valleys of Wales. Just a hop and a jump from Liverpool!

Building on the recent success of our children’s mindful play afternoons, Tara and her friends will lead some mindfulness games, arts and crafts, and exploring. Open to all the family. Refreshments provided.

The event will run from 9.30 until midday. If you still have energy afterwards, there is plenty to explore in the local area during the afternoon. The wonderful Criccieth beach is only four miles away and Snowdonia National Park is just a 20 minute drive.

There is no charge for this event. Donations to cover costs would be welcome. Please email hermitage@ahs.org.uk to let us know if you are coming. We’d love you to join us!

You are warmly invited to join us for our Tibetan New Year Celebrations at the Hermitage of the Awakened Heart in North Wales.

This year we will be welcoming in the Year of the Earth Dog.

The weekend will be one of celebration, feasting, chanting and meditation. Practice done at this time is said to be especially auspicious.

All welcome!

In addition to our usual Losar celebrations, this year we will have a special treat – a double celebration, greeting back our old friend Dashu as he brings to an end his one year retreat during this weekend!

You have a choice of dates to attend – coming for Losar itself on Friday 18th February or staying for the whole weekend (Friday to Sunday).

Please complete the booking form here to reserve your place.

There is no charge for this event, optional donations are always welcome.
