Course donations in 2015 - a letter from Lama Zangmo
You may already be aware that Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, the Abbot of Kagyu Samye Ling, made a decision this year in honour of Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche to offer the Dharma courses in Samye Ling without any course fees.
Here in Kagyu Samye Dzong London we would like to follow this example, and so from January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses will be offered without a suggested course fee. Courses by external organisations who hire our venue, as well as non-Dharma courses, will continue to have a course fee.....

Farewell to Manor Place
As many of you know, in the process of establishing a permanent centre here in Bermondsey, we were fortunate to have temporary use of the beautiful old baths building in Manor Place, near Kennington/Elephant & Castle. We originally thought we would be there for five years, but this was extended and we have been there for ten wonderful years in total.
Due to impermanence (and building works starting on the large site behind us) we have now been given notice to leave by Notting Hill Housing Association, and the centre will be closing to the public at the end of September 2015.
