Notice Board

7:00 – 8:30 pm every Wednesday evening.

Come and meditate together, listen to and consider what it is to be fully human, to live with greater reverence, wonder and freedom, and to contribute the best of ourselves to our world, our people, ourselves.

Everyone is welcome.


This year as well as Heather leading the group, we will have a few more senior students facilitating some of the Wednesday evenings.

Some news, and a change coming . . .


This Wednesday evening, April 11th, Heather will be leading the sitting group, and is going to focus on ‘change‘ itself, and in particular with respect to the news of illness of one of our senior teachers: Steve Armstrong.  Steve is now living with a very rare, aggressive, fast growing cancer that cannot be cured, but is treated with a standard protocol of radiology and chemo, with the average survival rate of 14+ months.

We will spend some time sending our care and appreciation to Steve and his partner, Kamala, both of whom have come to teach here at Stowel Lake Farm – some of you will know them.   Please come and share this evening of appreciation and well wishing, for whomever you might wish to consider.  We all have someone who would benefit from our kindness.

The following Wednesday (April 18th) will be led by our wise elder, Barbara Dams, and

the following Wednesday, April 25th will be the last Wednesday at Stowel Lake Farm for the rest of the summer.  It is a social evening, so please come to the Barn, bring some little snacks, (teas are provided) and we will visit and socialise together before a quiet meditation.

Then MAY 2nd, we will meet at the same time and same day, but at St. Mary’s Church, Fulford, opposite the Fulford Hall, where will be be meeting for the remainder of the summer.


Next Kalyana Mitta meeting will be:  April 24th at Ralf Water’s place: Last house on the right on Reginald Hill Road.

Come at 4 p.m. for tea and chat; the meeting will start at 4:30 – 6:30.   We are reading and exploring Guy Armstrong’s recent book on ‘Emptiness’.
