July Newsletter – Aro Ling Cardiff Buddhist Centre
The Aro Ling Buddhist Centre in Cardiff is a lovely place to be on a sunny day. The high vaulted ceiling with sky lights makes it bright and airy. The room is decorated in the traditional Nyingma style, with a deep blue ceiling, and stripes of orange and green on yellow and deep red. It is not
easy to express the atmosphere this manner of decoration evokes. It is peaceful and calming, whilst also enlivening awareness.
As we approach July and August, the season of holidays and retreats, there will be some periods when Aro Ling is closed. Aro Ling will be closed from 1st July to 13th July completely, as we will all be away for the summer encampment retreat. This retreat, for the students of Ngakma Nor'dzin and Ngakpa 'ö-Dzin, takes place in Shropshire. Aro Ling will then reopen as usual until mid August. From 17th August till 21st September all daytime and weekend
courses will be suspended, with only the Tuesday evening meditation group running.
July 01 - 13: closed completely
July 14 - Aug 16: open as usual
Aug 17 - Sept 21: only the Tuesday evening meditation group running
Sept 22: opening hours back to normal and the start of the autumn programme
All these dates and changes to the schedule can be found at aro-ling.org/cardiff or on Meetup.com/aro-ling-cardiff.
