Autumn Weekend Sangha Retreat

The Jewel, the Lotus… and the mud Friday 17th to Sunday 19th November 6.00 pm Friday to 4pm Sunday ‘This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! ‘ Courageously greeting our demons – large and small, and deepening our practice together as a sangha. This residential retreat is an opportunity to practise with old friends and to make new friends. The programme includes meditation, workshops and ritual, and there will also be time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. All retreatants will be asked to help out with cooking, washing-up where possible. The meals will be vegan and sleeping accommodation will be in shared single-sex rooms. Everybody who meditates regularly is welcome. It’s a good weekend for those who have not been on retreat before. It is friendly, easy-going and fun, with lots of meditation and Dharma practice. To book: please complete and return a booking form (available from the Buddhist  Centre) with a non-returnable deposit of £65 to cover the basic costs. We suggest an additional donation during the retreat of between £15 and £65.... Read more
