    Opening of the Five Bells

    On January 17, Storm sent out an email announcing the new Five Bells Village Pub in Bieup.

    Storm writes:

    ...I chose the Five Bells to match the number of meditation bells at the start, end and during a one hour PaB session. Inside the Five Bells, you will find seating for 10 people around a cozy fireside. There are games to play: traditional pub darts, mini-go, and a chess table with an additional two chairs. To drink there is Greene King India Pale Ale or Guinness from the bar, or there is a Moroccan tea service by the fire. If you need to freshen up before leaving, there is even espresso coffee at the bar. There are two candles always lit inside, and two torches at the doorway that light only in hours of darkness....In email #2: ...the pub is now set in a small apple orchard - and we've already gone wassailing to ensure a good harvest for cider later in the year - and there are grasses and more flowers on the garden outside; there's a new traditional inn sign outside the door, on a pole with five bells as part of it (in addition to the existing one on the south wall) and you may hear a distant chime every 15 minutes; the fire now crackles invitingly and you may also hear an occasional distant flurry of birdsong.


    The Five Bells also comes with it's own Cat-In-Residence. A “Name that Cat” competition commenced in January (which was not really a competition). The cats name was announced in February. ;) namethecat3_001 (1).png

    Malta Retreat January 25 - 29

    The biggest event for the month of January was the Malta Retreat January 25 - 29. I'd like to include every single wonderful thing that arose as topics as a result from the Malta theme session. Rather than repeating what has been documented quite extensively here in the wiki, please see the following links for rich, detailed accounts of the Malta retreatants experiences.
