Taking Care of One Another: An Update 18/03/2020

Covid 19 update

Following yesterday’s advice from the Scottish and UK governments the charity trustees of Triratna Highland Buddhist Community have decided to close the Highland Buddhist Centre to the public with immediate effect until at least 20th April and possibly beyond that date.We will of course update you as more advice is given. Please keep looking at the website.

The Buddha taught that we are deeply interconnected in seen and unseen ways. This virus has affected us all and we as a community can keep in touch and take care of one another in a variety of ways through phone calls, Skype and FaceTime and through emails.

We can keep our practice alive and connect to the wider Buddhist Sangha through the Buddhist centre online https://thebuddhistcentre.com/ and free Buddhist Audio https://www.freebuddhistaudio.com/

We are also exploring ways of connecting online and will keep you informed of developments.

We continue to send our well-wishing and care to all those throughout the world who have been severely affected by the virus and to the front line staff caring for those affected.

May all beings be well.

With Metta

From all at the Highland Buddhist Centre.

We Need a New Centre

UPDATE (1 September, 2015): We still have to find a new premises, and the search is ongoing, but we have an extension on the lease for the time being. We expect to be in the Centre until some time next year. Please keep your eyes and ears open, though, for any opportunities that you think may be of interest.

We just got a letter from our landlord telling us we need to vacate our Inverness centre in June. We’ve managed to negotiate a “stay of execution” for a month or two, but we must start the process of looking for somewhere new.

There is no doubt at all that having the Centre has enabled us to reach out and support the local community in a way that we haven’t been able to before. We’ve run meditation classes, mindfulness classes, yoga classes, drop-in sessions, film nights, Buddhist practice days, group meetings, and more.

And we want to carry on. We’re just getting started!

Can you help?

Do you know of any properties to buy or rent in Inverness (or conveniently close by)? Ideally it will have space for groups of up to 30 people. Obviously we’d prefer the usual amenities, but if the place is a bit dilapidated that’s ok – Triratna has a long and happy history of renovating old properties.

If you do know of something could you click here to send us an email.

Thank you, thank you for any help you can give.
