Our First Retreat Day

Yesterday (Sunday) we held our first ever retreat day here at the West Wight Sangha! It was something that I had planed to do for some time but the restraining factor has always been getting enough people together from our small group to make it worthwhile.

My thinking was that a retreat day held on a Sunday would attract those who couldn't make it on a week day due to work commitments and the problem of numbers was solved following a chat with Mark and Matt from the Lake and Ryde groups at the Island Buddhist picnic. With their contacts bringing in extra people we actually reached the point where we were having to turn wannabe participants away!

A big thank-you to everyone who came along, it was your engagement and enthusiasm that made it the fun and rewarding day that it was, Namaste.
