30 June: New banner!

Tom and Trevor put up our new banner this week. Do you think it’s big enough?!  We sadly won’t be opening for some time so thought it time to remind everyone we will continue to be ONLINE!

16 June: It’s Loneliness Awareness Week – fancy an online chat-and-cuppa?

We’re thinking of offering some online coffee and chat meetings so we can connect with each other. We are missing you all here at Drolma and we know many of you are missing being here too.

You’ve told us how coming to Drolma is so much more than ‘just’ meditation classes….it’s a community where everyone is welcomed with a smile, and connections are made, often over tea and biscuits.

Well, you’ll have to bring your own tea and biscuits (!) but we hope you’ll feel like joining us?

Can you contact Alison at addrolma@gmail.com if you like this idea and might join in?

12 June – Drolma Dawn Chorus

4.30am and Dogsthorpe Rd night-time silence breaks – take a listen

4 June – Want to help Drolma?

Helping out is not all about money or pizzas!!

You can…

  • Spread the word that we are still here, albeit online!  Tell them about our classes: chat with your friends or share our Social Media posts and info.
  • Put up some posters – pin them up at your local supermarket or store as lockdown relaxes.  Can you? Let us know and we will drop some off or send some your way.
  • Gardening and maintenance at Drolma – contact Alison at addrolma@gmail.com if you feel able to help her do this (socially distanced of course!)

1 June – Fundraising for Drolma!

Well! A massive “THANK YOU” to everyone whose raised funds for the Centre through buying Sue’s wonderful face-masks and Tom’s amazing veggie and vegan pizzas! Thank you Tom for cooking, and everyone else for eating!

Total raised so far is over £500!

What creative ideas will be coming next we wonder….you wonderful Sangha community!

The garden in May

Yesterday was gardening day.  The barrel-pond and conifer arch needed some tending.  Let’s hope the dragonfly likes it.

Do you?

Here are some pics of a beautiful sunset and the garden (of course)

3 May – Hey! We’re all online…

How wonderful that so many people are joining our meditation classes and courses online! We’ve all found our own meditation spaces – somewhere to be quiet, relaxed and contemplative – in the comfort of our own home.

Here are just a few that people have kindly shared. It’s not the same as meeting at our beautiful Drolma Centre of course, but how fortunate we are to still be able to receive Buddha’s teachings from Kelsang Rak-ma, to meditate together and to feel connected with our community.

Come along and join us – everyone is welcome – whether you’re completely new to meditation or if you’ve had some experience. We love to welcome everybody.

27 April – Drolma’s lovely lounge…

We had a request for photos of the lounge/shop at Drolma Centre…where we look forward to meeting you all for a chat and a cuppa (there are plenty to choose from!) again very soon

15 April – New poster up at Drolma!

Thanks Zenith Edward Octave and family for the beautiful art work and Tom for safely putting it up!

11 April

Missing the meditation room? Here’s some pics for you…

9 April – More garden pics for you…

27 March – The garden in springtime…

Are you missing seeing Drolma Centre’s spring garden?

Here’s some pics from yesterday…you’ll have to imagine the smell of the freshly cut grass, the sound of the birds chirping, voices on the wind and the doves coo-ing.
