LONG WEEKENDS with Sheffield Ashrams
At walking distance Ashram Community Homes in Sheffield.
Sheffield Ashram Long Weekends are designed to give an experience of 3-4 days of life together; enable people to come and stay in Ashram Community Houses; provide an opportunity to do practical work together; and be a place and time for people outside the community to come and experience our life together. Long Weekend programmes begin on Thursdays (or Fridays if more convenient for you) and go on until Monday afternoons.
