It’s a free day. A day to reflect or to explore.

For some people it was a relaxed start to the day then a chance to spend time contemplating in their own way the meaning of the teachings from part one of the Summer Festival.

Other people literally headed for the hills to enjoy a day wandering in the magnificent Lake District or walked around Ulverston, enjoying the charms of the local and historic market town.

For everyone, it’s a chance to relax and recharge for what is to come. With many new people arriving for week two, Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre buzzed with activity.

In the evening, the Resident Teachers met for the NKT Annual General Meeting where they heard reports on developments throughout the world in 2016-2017 and exciting developments to come.
