Mindfulness, Creativity and Poetry


SUNDAY 14th OCTOBER 2018 - 9.00AM TO 5.00PM

Location: Manchester Buddhist Centre, 16-20 Turner St, Manchester M4 1DZ

We have chosen to seek a new venue due to changes to the St Peter’s House Chaplaincy facilities and to take the opportunity to present something new and fresh to the local Buddhist Community.

Theme: The theme aims to focus upon the impact that dialogue has on addressing challenges involving suffering and arising from differences.

If you wish to hold a workshop or help with the convention itself as a volunteer please contact us at manchesterbuddhistconvention@yahoo.co.uk. Please also do check our website at http://www.manchesterbuddhistconvention.wordpress.com for updates on the convention.

Indeed in these times of materialism yes lets hope we can exemplify by our shared wisdom and practice how we can open the dharma to many people out there in a spirit of love and compassion at our convention.
