16 September 2010: Buddhist Temple Visit

One of our first meetings of the term was a visit to the Buddhist Centre in East Oxford. Though there weren't completely ready for us (they’d got their dates mixed up) the Cubs were welcomed in and invited to ask as many questions as they wanted. They found out about the monk who grew up on Mount Everest, tending goats from when he was younger than the Cubs, and were taught about meditation. We now have a minute of silent meditation at the beginning of every meeting.
