The Books are Closing on Question Time

Dear readers - thank you for your interest in Question Time with Ngak'chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen. We now have a range of questions to put to them on the subjects of Retreat and Retreat Centres in general, and Drala Jong in particular.

I'll be closing the books on questions by mid-July, and aim to have the interview conducted and up by the end of August - so - last chance to submit questions please.

Question Time

As part of trying to find ways for our donors and volunteers to participate fully in the life of the Drala Jong fundraising project, we'd like to invite your participation in a 'Question Time' session with our Spiritual Directors, the Lineage Holders of the Aro Tradition. We are currently formulating a list of questions to put to Ngak'chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen about their vision for Drala Jong, and why in particular they feel a Residential Retreat Centre is important in this age of web-courses, Skype transmissions and soundbite Dharma.

As well as providing further insight for Drala Jong supports, this will be of particular interest to those involved in the Aro Ling Centre in Bristol (www.aro-ling.org), as the interview provides an opportunity to explore how a street-front non-residential city centre venue fits with a rural seculed residential centre like Drala Jong.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
