As part of trying to find ways for our donors and volunteers to participate fully in the life of the Drala Jong fundraising project, we’d like to invite your participation in a ‘Question Time’ session with our Spiritual Directors, the Lineage Holders of the Aro Tradition. We are currently formulating a list of questions to put to Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen about their vision for Drala Jong, and why in particular they feel a Residential Retreat Centre is important in this age of web-courses, Skype transmissions and soundbite Dharma.

As well as providing further insight for Drala Jong supports, this will be of particular interest to those involved in the Aro Ling Centre in Bristol (, as the interview provides an opportunity to explore how a street-front non-residential city centre venue fits with a rural seculed residential centre like Drala Jong.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
