Alfoxton: A Renovating Virtue
A year in the life of the Triratna Buddhist Community.
A reflective delight from Hartley Woolf, filmmaker and member of the new Buddhist community at Alfoxton.
THE BUDDHIST CENTRE [ONLINE] presents this poetic and affecting documentary capturing a year in the life of the Triratna Buddhist community who have taken on the ambitious task of renovating the dilapidated estate of Alfoxton Park in the heart of the Somerset countryside.
Once home to William and Dorothy Wordsworth, the community’s vision is to run the house as an arts and meditation retreat centre. Following the seasons, the film beautifully reveals the changes in the land and on the building project, weaving connections between the poetry of the Romantics, physical work and spiritual practice.
