On Wednesday 21 November 2019, as a result of our advertisement in the City of Armadale’s newsletter, a small group of people, turned up at the monastery for the first time to join in a new Seniors Group for fellowship. 

We met four times before we broke up for Christmas and New Year period. We resumed on 6 February 2019. By April, we changed from Wednesdays to Mondays. 

The group currently consists of mainly women. We look forward to the group expanding in the near future.

Our activities range from learning new ideas on health and well-being including meditation for our benefit. 

We share our  life stories, and experiences with compassion, love and joy, without judgments. There may be guest speakers and outings according to the group’s needs.

Ajahn Brahm arrived back from a house dana. We were very happy to see him. One of us was really excited about seeing him in person for the first time after she has been listening to his Dhamma talks on the website for some time.
