Big Painting Work Day

Thank you all who participated in the Aranya Bodhi work weekend on June 18 and 19. Fourteen friends and residents took part, and in a single weekend we completed the most difficult half of our kuti painting for this year.

We had fun, and enough time for lunch, Dhamma discussions and tea. Our youngest helper, Venus was especially delightful. At 3 years old, she has clearly mastered the concept of painting.

There is a second mini-work weekend planned for this weekend, June 25-26. The schedule each day:

8:30 ~ Morning devotions
9:00 to 11:00 ~ Visitors arrive, setting up, preparing dana
11:00 to 12:30 ~ Dhamma reflection and lunch
12:30 to 5:00 ~ Painting
5:30 ~ Tea
6:30 ~ Evening devotions
