New Community Members!

The Adhisthana Community are delighted to be expanding to include two new beings. Ksantikara and Patrick spent 10 days in quarantine in one of the accomodation blocks before moving into the men’s community.

Ksantikara moves to Adhisthana having just taken over the role of European Young Person’s Co-ordinator from Prajnaketu. He leaves from Sukavati, one of the men’s communities at the London Buddhist Centre, where he also previously worked. Now the Young Person’s Co-ordinator is living at Adhisthana, there will hopefully be greater capacity for residential Young Person’s events. Watch this space…

Patrick is joining as both Maintainence and Tech Support. He will be part of the Operations Team and work particularly closely with Yashodeva, as he learns how to keep this large site in working order! His presenece will also increase capacity for Adhisthana to sustainably run online retreats.

Below are a few images of them settling into living here – meals and conversations with the community, walks in the snow up Oyster Hill, and a game night where Bodhiketu beat everyone (twice).
