Important information on joining the festival online

The emphasis for the Spring Festival 2023 is on in-person attendance, but it will be possible to participate online if you are not able to attend in-person.

What to book for
You will need to choose either in-person or online at the time of booking. You will not be able to book for both.

Video on demand only
There will be no live broadcast of the Festival. For those who have booked to participate online, each teaching and meditation session will be available as a video on demand 48 hours after the live session.

The Festival will be given in English and the videos will include the option to listen to the teachings in Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Mandarin & Cantonese.

The videos will be available online until 23:59 hours BST (British Summer Time) June 7. This excludes the Refuge Vow ceremony, which will be available only for 24 hours from the time the link has been made live.

Please note: the Refuge Vow ceremony would not normally be available as a video on demand, but because this is an International Festival and there is no live broadcast, as an exception it will be available online for 24 hours to ensure people in different time zones are able to view it.
