Visit to a Theravadan Buddhist Monastery

June 19, 2018

On Monday 18th June Year 10 students visited Amaravati, a Theravadan Buddhist monastery near to Hemel Hempstead. We spent the day with Ariya Silo, one of the most senior monks. We had a tour of the grounds, witnessed a meal accompanied by chanting and had the opportunity to ask some challenging questions about aspects of Buddhist belief and practice. The day ended with a guided meditation session. It was an enjoyable trip and gave the girls the opportunity to experience a very different way of life.
