Transforming self and WorldThroughout the month of June all our centres in the UK will be taking part in Buddhist Action Month.
You may already know that the Brighton Buddhist Centre has made the commitment to moving towards sustainability. We feel we need to align our ethical awareness with the realities of the 21st century, especially climate change. We would like to invite you all to take part in a series of events throughout June to explore this and what it means for our individual and collective practice.
