This is the first notice about the Manchester Buddhist Convention.
This will take place, as usual, on the second Sat. of October, (Oct.10th) at St. Peter’s Chaplaincy on Oxford Road. Please can you put it in your diaries. We have not decided on themes, format etc but will keep you updated. As you know this is the 10 anniversary of the founding of the MBC.
You may be interested to know that we have begun to have smaller events between the large ones in October. These will have dual aims: to learn about a particular theme and to learn about other lineages (which is, of course, one of the aims of the Convention). The first of these took place at Triratna Buddhist Centre on Turner Street on the theme of ‘Mindfulness in the West’. Space was limited so we invited Centres to send two people to these. If you are interested in the event or the Report, please let us know via the website email address.
The second one will take place at the Dechen Centre in Chorlton. Further information will be sent as we plan it. Again, this will be subject to space.
