30 of us spent an evening reflecting on gratitude.
Gratitude is a revolutionary act, we can always turn our mind to it no matter what is happening. The preparation for this evening was to hear from Shradhagita from the London Buddhist Centre who introduces the theme of gratitude here (listen from 0 mins to 19 mins). Suddhimani led a delightful gratitude practice based on the metta bhavana. We then shared in small groups and a bit with the whole group our gratitude stories.
Maitrisara also mentioned the International Buddha Day on 9th May which you can read about here and access from this page on the day. And if you have attended some of the day and want to have an informal chat about it on Sunday with other members of the Birmingham Sangha, you can join Shantiprabha at 4pm Sunday 10th May here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84089667083
