This Sunday (10th August) at Dhammagiri Forest Monastery there is a one day meditation/ethics program called “Full Moon Program”. If anyone is interested, please contact uqbuds[at]gmail.com. Since the monastery is a little bit far (near Ipswich), it will be really good if you have a car. We can see how many cars we have and give lifts to people who don’t have cars.
