As well as leading retreats at some of our established retreat venues, I also run seminars and retreats with Vijayamala. From 2012-16 we led a large number of them, keeping numbers down to seven or eight people apart from us. These small numbers gave us the opportunity to explore themes and practise together in a way tailored to people’s needs and interests, and to get to know them in more depth than is possible on a larger retreat.
In 2017-18 we took a couple of years out, to concentrate on other projects. For the future, we’re focusing on providing longer retreats for Order members. The first one happened in South Wales in the winter of 2019, with 38 of us. It was over 3 times oversubscribed. So we have planned 2 more, one in Sweden in May-July 2020, and another one in Wales in Jan-Feb 2021.
If you’re an Order member interested in these events then you’ll find more details here.
