We are holding our annual 'Exile and Return' retreat in commemoration of the founders of Pureland Buddhism in Japan who were exiled at the beginning of the thirteenth century. This retreat is a short period of intensive practice.

What are the roots of anger?
This retreat day will focus on looking deeply into our roots of
anger and irritation. We might be surprised at what we find there.
We might be moved and find our anger melts away so that we find new
energy to face the world. Anger is energy, wasted energy that could
be harnessed. We can use this energy to build a Pure Land…….
Today was the last day of our training week in Buddhist Chaplaincy 10-18 November 2007. The early part of the programme was concerned with Spiritual Facilitation and the latter part with Death and Dying. A typical stuent response... "These days have given me something special. The material, the sharing, and the exercises have been meaningful and brought me to a level of understanding that I had not expected. It's been a validation of life and death. This way of learning is so powerful to me." This course is part of the Vow 22 Programme
