In my last post I talked about the online Order retreat that I’d just done at Adhisthana. I appreciated the retreat so much that I promptly signed up to do another one. So I’ll be back online from Adhisthana , from the 7th – 12th of November, doing a retreat that I think will follow on well from the one last month.
The essence of bodhicitta is learning to escape the prison of narrow self-concern, and find the freedom that comes with wisdom and an open heart. That involves learning to fully engage, to give ourselves to life, but without being naive or neglecting ourselves. (We’re part of life too.) There are Buddhist meditation practices that are specifically designed to help us do this, and we’ll be exploring some of them over these 6 days. We’ll focus especially on the principles behind them, because once we’re grounded in those principles we’ll be much freer, more alive and flowing in how we practise.
Although the theme of this retreat follows on from the Bodhicitta Practice retreat last month, you don’t need to have been on that one to join and benefit from this one. Again the retreat will be on a dana basis. And we’ll do our best to do the impossible, and find session timings that work for people from around the world. Here you will find full details of the theme, and how to book.
All good wishes,
