Core Sangha Retreat Declared Smashing Success

Sixteen members of the Core Sangha gathered at Dharmadhara to meditate and reflect on Stillness, Simplicity, and Contentment, focusing on the Satipatthana Sutta. Paramabodhi, who was visiting from the UK, led the retreat this year. He is an old friend to the sangha, having helped get the SFBC going in the early 90's before returning to London to work on his art. Some attendees who hadn't been to Dharmadhara recently remarked on how much it has changed, and everyone appreciated the beautiful (and air conditioned) shrine room. The retreat had a simple, spacious feel and was a great opportunity to practice together.
