It was 10 years ago that a group of friends who attended the Buddhafield Festival first got together to create events with a similar feel and approach. Exploring the Dharma closer to nature, camping out and creating a community. From that first small camping event Buddhafield East has gone from strength to strength, last year holding a whole programme of events. Last year we took a bit of a break, went inwards and evaluated how we move forward into double figures.
This year we will be having our Summer Gathering on the 27th August and will be celebrating our 10 years. So put it in your diaries, tell your your friends, in fact fact tell anyone who cares to listen. Flyers, posters and advertising will be out soon and the new website is coming along nicely so should be up soon as well.
If you want to help out and be part of the team please come along to one of our meetings we need plenty of help and everyone can offer something and that help will be warmly received.
Also we have a team weekend planned 17th/18th May where we will camp, eat, practice and plan together, oh yes and fun!. We are hoping to purchase new racking for the container that holds all our equipment so a sort out of the container will be part of the activities. If you want to come along can you let us know so we can get an idea of numbers. Email email@example.com.
